Hi Monza. Funny you should ask. I just received mine yesterday. Won it for $70 from Cameta. Seems like an ok lens. Nice range for a walkabout. Here's a couple of samples for you Monza.

I also got mine about a week ago, from Cameta. I like the range, the weight is taking a bit of getting used to. For the price, a great deal.

I think we all around looking for lenses on the cheap. :lol:

I spotted these about a week or so back and noticed that they are the older model, but looked ok.

I was thinking about getting one and was planning a thread where we all agree not to outbid each other and we each get one at a time super cheap..;)

I thought I got mine super cheap at $70u.s. If you price this lens in Canada, it is almost $725c before taxes - same lens - at Camera Canada. Maybe it's being discontinued, and Sigma unloaded them to a U.S. dealer to get rid of them. The 18-200 and 18-125 are probably the lenses they're concentrating on now. Anyway, it's a heck of a deal at less than $100u.s.......thekman.

Congrats Monza! I think you'll be happy with your purchase. If not, you could probably trade it in up here, and still get more than what you paid for it. Nice walkabout range on this lens, and the weight isn't that bad. I must be getting used to a dslr. Picked up my FZ today, and it feels as light as a feather......thekman.

I just noticed that Cameta is now posting a minimum bid of $99.95 and a buy-it-now for the same amount with these lenses (in Pentax mount). Guess I got mine just in time. BTW the same lens in the Nikon mount version is $249.95 minimum and buy-it-now,,!!!
