k200d and Sigma 18-250mm OS HSM

A store told a friend of mine that the Sigma 18-250mm OS HSM is "not compatible" with the K200D. I can't understand why. Is this true?

K200D works only with screw-drive focusing lenses.

EDIT: I have been informed that the K200D will focus with both types. Perhaps the salesperson that told you they aren't compatible was as just mistaken as well.

Any camera starting with the K10D or newer can use KAF3 mount lenses with no limitations- and the k200 is indeed newer

See here: Pentax K200D - Digital SLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews - DSLR and Film SLR Database
Autofocus with sdm = yes

Thanks for confirming that. That store obviously doesn't know much about Pentax.
- Cheers
