sigma 70 200 won't find focus on k01

Just received a great 70 200 ex macro 2.8 sigma. It focuses beautifully on my k3, but won't find focus on the k01, hunts and hunts and nothing. Am I missing something?

without a firmware upgrade, the Sigma 70-200mm HSM II that I have will only pdaf, not cdaf, so that's probably why it isn't working for you. The k-01 being mirrorless only does cdaf. I may be totally wrong on this, so more experienced members, please correct me if I am. If you try live view on your k3, it should fail exactly as it does with the k-01.
