The 11-18 is not full frame compatable. I have the 15-30 for my K1, and that's what you want.
The 11-18 works fine on FF from 15mm or so. And a true, full frame 15mm lens ought to be wide enough!

As for the first-gen Sigma 12-24, yes, at f8, I'd call it sharp. Not as bitingly sharp as my F 50 macro or my DFA 28-105 or my DA*300, but I think I could close the gap with heavier use of sharpening. But I'm not doing photo-surveillance here; there can be such a thing as too much visual information. I place more value in the "drawing," the linear accuracy in a photo because I can spot those errors at any print size or magnification.

That would seem to be the least understood statement in photography in this age of test chart comparisons.
