Advice on price of a lens

I'm thinking of buying a used Pentax SMC DA L 55-300mm f/4-5.8ED Lens. What should the top price be so I don't get shafted?

TIA

Pentax-DA L 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED Reviews - DA L Series Zooms - Pentax Lens Reviews & Comprehensive Database

$220 seems to be the average for one in the Lens Review section.

You can always find the lens on ebay and then use the "completed listing" tool to filter the selections and that should give you the prices they've sold for recently.

No problem. Someone was kind enough to answer questions for me when I started. Good luck.

Don't forget you will need a lens hood (does not come with the DAL version).
