Wow, nice expensive lenses. I'm not sure if it does or not, I own a K-m/K2000 but I'm a complete noob as the kit lens is the only one I have.

Think so, if i can recall the All Pentax DSLR's from the K100Ds up all have HSM support and i read somewhere that the K-m/k2000 has HSM/SDM...check the camera reveiw db here if it says the K-m has HSM support then your set otherwise have a look at the Tammy verson (70-200mmf2.8) i got one and i love it, us it %80 of the time, some say better IQ...

hope this helps you a bit.

Have a good one!!!

Just checked for you

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/k-mount-digital-slr/61301-pentax-k-m-k2000.html

yea the K-m does support SDM and i remember when i was looking at that lens with my K100Ds that lens should work with it... as HSM/SDM all work off the same contacts

Have a good one!!
