K-3 and Sigma Art 35 1.4 - thoughts, experiences, photos?

Has anyone used the new K-3 and Sigma Art 35 1.4 lens? I am having a hard time going all in with any of the primes that Pentax has to offer, be it because of price, AF noise, value, etc. so I am looking at the Sigma alternative. Has anyone used this lens on the new K-3? How does it feel on the body, and how do you like it? Any photos of the lens on the body (to see how it looks), as well as taken with this combination wide open?

Thank you.

I'm away from home (and my K3 capable computer, but I'll try and get some photos of this lens on the K-3 w&wo grip. It is my favourite lens out of all I have, but it is bulky if you are used to pentax ltd primes. It is also quite long. My copy is sharp on the focal plane at f1.4 and very sharp at 1.8. It simply renders everything beautifully as far as I'm concerned.

Great - would love to see the photos when you can. Thanks!

Ok, here's some photos of the K3 with grip and the Siggy 35mm Art. I have trawled my photos taken with this lens and find that all of them worth showing are of my nephews and step nieces. Whilst I am sure this forum is full of the most decent people on the planet I cannot post pictures of these adorable children online in the current climate. I'll endeavour to take something postable soon.

Wow, looks bigger than I thought. A very serious looking lens.
Very well done shots.

Great performer , probably the best lens I ever used.
Yes it is large, it is DG so FF ready, but even with K-30 does not feel out of balance.
So far took number of photos with K-30 and just a few with K-3, pleasure and enjoyment to use.
with K-3:
