Yes, but why would they do that? To help Pentax launch a FF camera? I don't think so... they would do it on a case by case basis, for those lenses they believe there is a high enough demand.
I doubt people would go crazy about Pentax, and ready to buy every lens Sigma doesn't currently have in K-mount, just because Pentax would have a FF camera.

L.E. And exactly how large is that number? I've counted 7:
APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM
200-500mm F2.8 APO EX DG
300-800mm F5.6 EX DG APO HSM
8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye
800mm F5.6 EX APO DG HSM
120-300mm F2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM
150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro
So with the 18 full-frame lenses currently made by sigma in Pentax mount, add on maybe three or four more... that's a pretty big full-frame lineup. Far larger than any 'new' mount introduced to the world gets.

There's about 35 lenses right now, plus whatever DA lenses and roadmap lenses you want to call FF. Current K-mount Full-Frame Lenses
Sorry but the link is just plain inaccurate. Might I again refer everyone to the B&H site, but it's also not just them - there are a number of companies selling cameras that are also able to come up with their version of about 50-60 cirrently marketed Pentax PK full frame lens'.

...And yes as Eddie1960 stated, Sigma would not have much work in getting out their fair share of new full frame lens' - in addition to the ones they already offer in PK.

Well the 120-300mm/f2.8 would be a great lens to use.

Are you saying the list is incomplete? I'd love to add some lenses. I know the 50mm f/1.8 should be on there but right now it's only described as APS-C.

Yes, sure, but it's not like it will be automatically launched in K-mount only because Pentax has a FF

DA 50 1.8 is marketed as being compatible with FF, not as an apsc lens (reality is it's likely just a reworked 1.7 with the rounded blades changing the aperture value to 1.8 and new coatings in a cheap body)

I've never seen Pentax say that it was full-frame capable. That was my requirement.

Well they either sell them a lot and restock again very quickly or the things are there for some years now

Sigma 180mm f/2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM Lens (for Pentax)

Do you mean this one??

Hoping not. I have "orders in" at three different camera stores to see which one gets it first - most likely as shown in the link it will be B&H. This lens is one of only three lens I would ever purchase with a version of hsm. The 86mm front filter should be interesting too.

...And if this lens is pulled from production; would that also include the Sigma 150mm macro as well?
