Sigma Telephoto for my Pentax K-X

Hi Guys,

I had recently acquired a Pentax K-X.Quite impressed with its performance and features as compared to my fellow (old) companion Canon 1000D.

I want to buy a Telephoto lens for my Pentax.While going thru the internet i found below listing for Sigma 70-300 APO DG lens.
Question- Is it going to fit on my Pentax K-X's body,I might sound a big stupid with this question.

Waiting for the inputs.

If you get the Pentax mount version of the lens it will (check the description of the item, it'll either way Canon, Nikon, Sony, or Pentax, etc. Just pick the one that says Pentax and you'll be set.

Congrats on the new buy.
The quality of Sigma's varies from one model to the next.

There is also a tamron version of the lens which is pretty good. Also, you may be able to get a rebadged Quantaray lens for cheaper. The Pentax DA 55-300mm is probably better optically.
