Focal Brand Lenses and The K10D

Has anyone used Focal brand lenses on Pentax DSLR's? I tried researching them and I only know that they were sold at K-Mart, years ago. Has anyone used this lens or any others like it? It's a wide angle lens f 2.8-f/16

I have not got the K-10 but do have a Focal 60-300 f/4 that I use with my DS. It has served me well but a little hazy
