From Sigma's product brochure:

When HSM equiped models of Sony and Pentax lenses are attached to camera bodies that do not support HSM, AF will not function.

My lens showed up in the mail, and unfortunately I got a bad copy. I could not get the lens to focus properly, and it was definitely not something that could be fixed with the K-5's focus adjustment. Nothing in the frame looked in focus.

I'm disappointed because I really like my Sigma 70-200 F2.8 HSM, and I was expecting to really like the 24-70 F2.8. I will say was really good about the whole thing, and they are giving me a full refund.

I'm not going to try another copy, as I don't want to be mailing lenses back and forth. I wish I could have given a positive review for the lens, but it didn't work out that way for me.
