This offer from dcxpert, the ebay site of CR Kenndy, the Australian distributor of Pentax and Sigma. This is genuine stuff with genuine Australian warranty.

I've bought from them often. Excellent seller. My understanding is that dcxpert is not actually CRK, but they use CRK for fulfilment, and you do get the genuine warranty.

CRK's own ebay site is Surveying Equipment Online items - Get great deals on Survey Instruments, Photographic items on eBay Stores!
They sometimes have demo models and excess stock of Pentax, Ricoh and Sigma products,

Why do Sigma happily issue newish (2015) lenses for K-mount like the 18-300, but not lenses like the 50 f1.4, the 70-200 OS or either of the 150-600's? Very puzzling.

Because the 18-300 will be a big seller, and the others are more specialty lenses.

It could just be a sales forecast issue, I guess.

But it's a chicken-and-egg thing now - before people will buy K-mount Sigma's (specialty or not), they have to actually make lenses in K-mount.

That's true. But I guess Sigma would have a fair idea from sales of their lenses in other mounts what the likely sales would be for particular lenses in K-mount (even allowing for some extra demand given fewer alternatives in K-mount).

If the K-1 goes gangbusters Sigma might re-consider offering more lenses in K-mount - particularly the 70-200 f2.8. The one I'd like to see is the 150-600 C, as a longer and much cheaper alternative to the DFA 150-450.

Ditto. I think it's been a popular item in Canikon - the Tamron sold very very well, forcing Sigma to respond with clones. It would also be popular in Pentax, possibly more than might be expected due to the absence of the Tamron in K-mount. Fingers crossed.
