I've only used them once before, and had no complaints.

Used them once or twice - uneventful experiences, as they should be.

There you have it: 100% responding PF member approval - with a sample size of two.

But if things don't go just right on the first attempt ..... Please see resellerratings.com for this retailer. FWIW, I don't think I'd order from them again.

I haven't updated about Sigma lenses much. I'm curious this is the lens with HSM for Pentax? Or NO HSM?

Yes, HSM.
But, according to PF reviews database here, Sigma Lenses for Pentax: Current Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
The HSM is for only f/3.5 version.
I'm not sure about the f/4-5.6 version though.

It seemed like such a good deal that I ordered one.
Locally it is $599, on sale for $569 Canadian. This one with the current exchange rate should be $420.

You are correct - the eBay listing says HSM, but the Pentax version does not have it - in fairness to the listing, they are selling all mounts/versions.

I think it's still an incredible price for that lens.

Brownie4u, if you have the chance, please let us know when you receive it if you were hit with any additional charges from UPS. Sometimes they charge outrageous customs brokerage fees (unless vendors work out deals, like both Adorama and B&H have done)...

I am having it shipped to a mailbox in Point Roberts Washington to avoid possible charges. I usually do this with more expensive items.
I have in the last year ordered a bunch of smaller items out of china with no additional charges.
In the past I had ordered a $25 item out of the USA and was charged $30 brokerage and then tax on top! I was not happy about that one.
I tend to order my US orders to the US mailbox agent. They only charge a couple dollars to handle the package and I get to fill up on gas while I am there.
Some sellers refuse to mail to shipping address that differs from the billing address. As a result I just order from someone who will.

I ordered one earlier this week and it arrived today - well packed, perfect (NEW) condition - so far so good! - Once again, a purchase through this vendor without incident.

Great!!

Can I ask 1 more question, please?
Your lens that you just got, what kind of exterior barrel finish does it have?

Here is an example for the old version of barrel, https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/photographic-equipment-sale/225785-sale-...0-af200fg.html

And the later version, https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/photographic-equipment-sale/228222-sale-...x-dc-lens.html

I hope it is the latter finish!

Thank you very much!
