Sigma Lens question

Hi all. I'm a relative newbie here and I thank you all for the information you have provided as I learn my K-x camera. I am looking at a lens on ebay that I can't find much information on. It is a Sigma 28-105 F4-5.6 UC-II. Does anyone have any experience with this lens and care to share any experience with it?
Thanks.

only one review, doesn't sound too hot but if the price is the $60 the other forum member payed not bad (sounds like the kit lens is better)

if you will spend a little more the Sigma 24-70 exdg f2.8 is a great lens and used copies can be found for pretty reasonable prices ( though currently ebay is a little high - i paid $399 at a local shop for one a couple of years back)
Tamron also has a variant that has some good reviews

Thanks Eddie. I saw that one review too and was hoping someone had a little more information. I'm looking for something with a little more reach than the kit lens but not too big, as I already have a 70-300 lens. I thought it would be adecent walk-around lens.
