Sigma 50mm f1.4 for Pentax

I have been informed by my usual UK supplier that Sigma have never made a 50mm f1.4 EX DG HSM for Pentax.

I have seen reviews on Pentax Forums, so I wondered if anyone has any comment?

I have a Pentax K5iis camera.

Thanks.

Perhaps your supplier is talking about the latest iteration, the Art lens? Otherwise he is mistaken as the previous 50 1.4 was made for Pentax. I have a copy and it is a very good lens. It is discontinued at this time, I believe - because of the new Art lens.

Amazon UK is selling one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sigma-50mm-f1-4-EX-DG/dp/B001B1RFZ0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UT...ma+50mm+pentax

American buyers of a nervous disposition may need to look away at the price (the US Amazon website has the same lens at an equivalent 293)

This Sigma 50/1.4 is available for Pentax:
Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

The fancy "art" version won't be made in the K-mount, however. It's definitely a lens meant for FF users.
