I've used it on the K-1 with no issue.

Unfortunately, the buyer had to return the lens as it apparently wasn't compatible with two different K-1's - but worked great with a K-3. Go figure. I've contacted Sigma and am waiting for a response.

In the meantime, it's back on the market - however if you have a K-1, I'd suggest you pass until I've heard back from Sigma.

I heard back from Sigma today - they indicated the lens most likely needs a "no charge" firmware update so it can function correctly with the newer K-1. I'll be mailing it to Sigma tomorrow (02/01/2018) - will update when I hear more.

Got the lens back from Sigma - the paperwork indicates they "updated ki". I don't know what "ki" is, but I'm *assuming* it's some sort of internal designation for "firmware" - since they had indicated to me that's what they were going to do.

Anyway, I don't have a K-1 to test with, but it does work great on the K-S2 I bought.
