Sigma 70-200 f2.8

I'm interested in either iteration of this Sigma lens. Haven't exactly seen the advantages to having OS in lens on a pentax body though, maybe you can convince me.

You do not need OS

I am very interested in this lens, would you be willing to ship to USA? If so, what would the cost be?

The OS version seems to have better IQ, fast Focus, the OS is very good, I'd say better than in body SR... it also has the mode 2 for panning (not available on SR)

also seems that the older version might not be compatible with the K-1: Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG APO Macro HSM II Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
