Help with older Sigma 50mm 2.8 Macro

Hello, Does anyone here have any experience with this lens? I'm just curious how much this older version would be worth considering the newer EX DG version isn't very expensive. Does anyone know for sure if this lens is autofocus, or if they ever even made a manual focus? Thanks a lot, I couldn't find much here or anywhere else for that matter, lots of results for the newer version though.

Matt

Alright, I'm pretty sure it is manual focus. I saw an olympus mount that looks similar. Anyone have any input on this lens.

It's manual, but I've never tried one.
If you buy it make sure that the aperture is set to the A setting. You'll have to press a little button to move it the final click.

Stu, are you just referring to the lock for A setting, like on my FA50? Do you just mean to be sure that the A setting works? Thanks, Matt
