Simple Question

Hi all, I have been looking at lenses available for my K100dSuper, I have noticed a Sigma APO 120-400mm which would cover what I am after, the information with this lens (on the net) for Pentax mount states the body must support HSM motor.
Can anybody tell me which Pentax bodies do this, as I was unable to find this information. Sorry if i have missed this info somewhere simple.

K10D was the first to support SDM=HSM
After that came K100D Super which added SDM support and dust shake system/
And from that point all the New series which start with 2 have this feature.

Check the Pentax website for any firmware updates for your body, if it supports SDM, you're good.
