I didn't realise this lens name had a "D" at the end, what's that stand for?

That's a mistake--it's DC, which is the type of focus motor the lens has.

On a related but different note.... for any coming to NYC and thinking of doing some buying. Adorama is a much better place to buy lenses than B&H even if you pay a little more IMO. B&H will only let you demo what they have on display; Adorama will bring any lens they have in-stock up and let you try it out. @ B&H the salesman says "if you buy a lens you want a new one, you don't want to buy one someone else has used, do you?" "To which I replied "I'm sure I have. <grin - hey, they tout their liberal return policy... am I to believe those aren't re-packed and-sold?!> Hey, I own a Pentax, so used lenses come with the territory. ". The salesman giggled. But still, it left me unable to try the 70-200/2.8 HSM II out before I bought it, and discovering it doesn't work as well with a Pz TC as I'd hoped. ...anyway... looking forward to owner's reviews. This might turn out to now only be my 1st WR lens.
+1 on this. I've always found Adorama to be more helpful and friendly in store. They will go the proverbial 'extra mile' to help you out. They have been known to recommend a less expensive product and then tell you why. Pretty incredible for this day and age.
In addition they have a much greater selection of used pentax lenses.
