Can you post a photo of the rear of the lens showing the mount?

If you want it to function, as far as I know it has to have the K-Mount. That means it should be specified to be a Sigma for Pentax K-Mount lens.

Any lens that works on one Pentax DSLR will work on all Pentax DSLRs, including the Kx.
Could you post the exact wording from the instructions?

Hello and welcome to the forums - great to have you with us

If you could post a photo of the lens and its mount, with the rear protective cap removed so we can see it properly, we should be able to tell quite easily if it's for Pentax K-mount...

It's generally too expensive and too much trouble to attempt an adaptation of the mount for most lenses. This lens or something similar could probably be obtained in K mount a lot easier than trying to make it fit. A better informed opinion could be given if we see a photo of it even if taken with your phone camera.

Ah the memories, you're just more than a brassie and long iron from my family's home grounds (dad born near Droughdea, mom's dad from county Cavan). Welcome!
I've only been to Ireland once, and with a very basic compact digi-cam; I look forward to seeing the entire island more thoroughly, and with a Pentax in hand
