Sigma 18-125 HSM

Does anyone have this lens? I am looking at either the 18-200 or this 18-125. What I want to know is how is the focusing on the 18-125. The Sigma site says that the HSM works with the K10 and the K20 but an email I got back from Sigma said the HSM does not work in the Pentax mount. I am anxious to hear from someone who has one so I can know for sure.

I have decided to keep my Pentax 100-300 lens since my experiences with a Promaster 28-300 has soured me on huge focal length ranges. (Yes I know, 18-200 is a pretty big range too)

HSM works on Pentax cameras that support HSM. I tried on a K20D and it works fine.
