What do you think of Sigma's 'Art' series for Pentax K-mount ?

ePHOTOzine reviews:

Digital Photography Review links:

I think the zoom could be great, though AF performance might prove to be its Achilles' heel.
Makes you wonder if Pentax (Ricoh) will ever reveal some innovative exciting new zooms instead of re-polishing their existing line-up of lenses.

Kind regards.
