need info on Sigma 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6

I have searched the lens database here but I couldn't find the Sigma 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 with the k mount. Am I blind or perhaps missed it? What I did find was a website with minimal information regarding the lens.
Below is the link and i have a picture of the lens in question but i need to upload it.
Any information would be great since im very new to the pentax world. ty

I think the pic of your lens was SIGMA ZOOM λⅡ 75-300/4.5-5.6.
A very old version manual focus lens from sigma.
Some little information could be obtained from a website but in Japanese language

I have used the APO version of this lens before upgrading to Pentax 55-300. It is a good lens. You get what you pay for - and probably more because it is really inexpensive.

The only issue that I can see is the fact that the front element rotates as the lens focuses, which makes use of a polarizer difficult.

Other than that, it is perfectly OK for a serious enthusiast like me.
