Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO EX DG HSM Optical Stabilised Zoom Lens Canon Fit-

Hi all,

I'm new to here and a real beginner...

Will the above named lense fit and work with a K1 Mark II?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Not with a Canon mount it won't. Put it on a Canon body.

No, but if you swapped it for the Pentax K mount version of the lens, then it would work.

If you have a Pentax body and are thinking of purchasing - DO NOT DO IT. Look for one in Pentax K-mount.

If you already own that lens and a Pentax body, purchasing a used Canon body would probably be the easiest way to put the lens to use. Many, many decent Canon DSLR cameras on the used market.

If you own that lens & a Pentax DSLR and are determined to use the Pentax, you can either 1) trade-in the lens for the same or a similar model with Pentax K-mount; OR 2) sell the lens via EBAY and buy a Pentax K-mount version separately. IF you can sell the lens, that will probably earn you more $$ for it that trading it in.

If you confided in Sigma, they could possibly tell you if the lens mount could be converted to K- mount (Pentax mount). The contact number is: 800 896-6858.

Thank you all so much for your help!
This is my first experience in a forum and you've all been brilliant!
Thank you again.

I thought the conversion service was only available for Global Vision (i.e. C, A, S) lenses available in both mounts?
