Viewed lot market sales here. I find the price of used one on sigma 18-250, tamron 18-250, pentax 18-250 is pretty much same. about 380 bucks.
sigma one sounds has the latest technology. but it is heavier than pentax/tamron one.

The Tamron/Pentax 18-250 seem to have the most consistently positive reviews for any mega-zoom lens in recent years, including the Sigma. No need to pay extra for technology that does not help create a better photograph. If I was looking to buy one of these, I'd check out the forum marketplace here and glance at feedback scores and history of the seller. I have bought and sold several things here and have had only positive experiences.

Used the Tamron 18-200 today for the first time with my K-5. I'm more-than-pleased with it and a bargain price makes this lens a natural.
See what you think:

Adorama had two used 18-250mm last week and KEH had one used 18-250mm last week, all around US$360 which is a reasonable price for a lens in excellent condition (E+). You might find cheaper on the Forum marketlace...

I full agree with Jason that the DA18-250mm is a great lens. The focal length range is outstanding, despite some compromise in terms of IQ. Mine has been well-used and it remains my 'workhorse' lens.
