Something weird going on with those ebay listings. Both lenses were from the one seller in West Aus. Both ended and got relisted. One sold for $399. But now both are relisted yet again, this time for $559. With same pics and description. Tread really warily on this one.

Oh good a mystery! In the meantime, it seems Sigma is putting another run of K-mount copies on the market. I hope there'll be a chase scene in this drama (probably will be since it's playing out in Oz. ;~)

It's a bit more expensive but you can now purchase this lens directly from Sigma for the Pentax mount. It has been unavailable for awhile but they just started selling them again yesterday.

Interesting. I contacted Sigma USA about 7 months ago about this lens. Their representative told me it was permanently discontinued in the Pentax mount. Might want to call to verify so you don't get an unnecessary hold on your CC.

Glad to hear that they did another run. Perhaps there's some hope for some of their other lenses that have been DC'd in Pentax mount.
