Yes, it should work just fine. Sigma HSM is the same type of in-lens focus motor as Pentax SDM. Some older Pentax DSLRs, like the *istD series and original K100 I believe, do not have the power contacts on the lens mount to drive those motors, which is why there's the disclaimer about HSM only working on certain camera bodies.

All the newer bodies do though, including the K200D.
