Sigma 150-500mm lens on K7

Does anyone know if the Sigma 150-500mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM lens is fully compatible with the K7 or the K200D. I know the OS does not function on the lens but Sigma catalogue does say this lens with HSM the AF does not work on some pentax cameras such as the K100.
thanks
Tim

Several K7 forum members use this lens and have stated that it works with the K7

The K100D only has the screw-drive motor in the body so it will not AF using the in-lens motor.

HSM is the Sigma equivalent of the Pentax SDM, so you need a body that uses that feature (K100DS and later).

This doesn't belong in site suggestions. Moving to beginners' corner.
