Sigma 18-125mm F3.5-5.6 DC - where to buy?

Hi, just wondering, where can I find Sigma 18-125mm F3.5-5.6 DC at a decent price? In the lenses section where the reviews are, the average price is shown as $160, but all I can find on the internet is around $340.. Much thanks, help appreciated! (:

B&H has it for $339: Sigma - 18-125mm f/3.8-5.6 DC OS HSM Zoom Lens - 853109 - B&H

That's the price for a new one. The average price might be so low because people were buying them second-hand, or reviewing the wrong version of the lens.

I would say that people are reviewing the older version that doesn't have HSM or OS. It was quite a bit cheaper. Looks like Sigma is revamping their whole line up to put HSM and OS in all the zooms.

I ordered the older version of this lens from KEH for around $150 or so. Can't remember. It's image quality is about the same, maybe a little better than the Kit 18-55 zoom, but you do get the extra reach with the lens topping out at 125mm.
