Sigma 300mm F5.6 pan focus question

I just noticed this up for sale but I can't find anything about it, except on the Sigma site it was produced in 1978.
Is it of any use, good optics, value, etc

Thanks

Randy

I've seen the 135mm pan focus, but a 300mm f/5.6? Is that right? Can't find any evidence (with a quick Google search, anyway) that such a thing exists. Is it a screw-mount or bayonet? Is it a "Sigma-Z" lens?

All I can say is that the quality coming from Sigma at that time was extremely iffy -- they made some interesting wide-angles back then that can be fun, but I can't imagine a 300/5.6 being too special (or sharp). Without knowing more, if you want to play with it and it is in decent shape I'd pay no more then $30 (don't how the prices in Canada, though), but that would still be a gamble. If you are looking for a cheap 300mm, there are probably better options...
