It is true. They are all dated. The last one newly released for Pentax was back in 2014. In the meantime, about 75 new ones have been released for Canon/Nikon and now also for Sony instead of Pentax. Almost the complete Art/Contemporary/Sports range is missing.

As far as I know, Shanny SN600FGZ supports HSS.

"Manually operated". No AF etc... Better get a 50-500, 120-400 or the Pentax 150-450...

None of the Sigma TCs for Pentax are working with HSM. Sigma note: Products | NEWS | SIGMA GLOBAL VISION

I was lucky to get a brand new Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 APO HSM II a couple of weeks ago for my K1 II for a very reasonable price and so far I am very satisfied with this lens. Fast AF and very sharp. But as others have already mentioned, it does not work well with TCs. I can confirm that it does not work at all with my Kenko SHQ 1.5 PzAF (7 pin and 6 pin version). You have a small chance that the focus will lock at 70mm, but almost no chance at 200mm (=300mm). MF is working fine. But it's working with all my other lenses (28-105mm WR, 100mm 2.8 WR, Tamron 28-75mm 2.8). So I am sure my Kenko is not faulty.

If you are planing to use a TC, I strongly recommend you to buy the Tamron 70-200 instead of the Sigma. It's still available brand new here in the EU for about 650 €.

Hi!

My name is Markus and I am a pentaxian :). Replaced my Canon 60D with a K-1 Mark II a week ago. Also got a 28-105mm WR, 100mm 2.8 Macro WR and a Tamron 28-75mm 2.8. Love it! Very impressed by the image quality and low light capabilities. But I still have to learn and experiment a lot with the new gear. But not a big issue at all since the menu and the buttons are also designed very logically.


PS: I did not have an issues with the AF so far. Seems to be one of the most criticized topcis regarding to reviews.
