Sigma A 85mm Pentax mount?

AFAIK this lens was never released in K mount, but I just found a listing on eBay where seller claims it has such a sample... it's probably a simple mistake in the description, but maybe someone here knows something I do not?

Per the photo it looks like a Nikon F mount. Correct, this was never released for Pentax.

The solution of the question is in this new photo:

The lens sold is just a regular Sigma EX DG lens from the 2007 design.

No Art Series lens, so just an ordinary mass production copy.

Although the older version, it's still a good lens. I bought one this year.
