LBA: Sigma 100-300/4.5-6.7 UC

I picked this lens up locally for $85. For the price, it seems to be a pretty decent little lens--fairly sharp and nice color rendering. The following pics are straight out of the camera.

Same scene:

A lizard on my backyard fountain at 300mm

While Sigma doesn't make this lens anymore, Sigma4Less still has the DL version (next generation, I think) available for $114.95, which is not a bad deal at all.
Sigma Zoom Telephoto 100-300mm f/4.5-6.7 DL Autofocus Lens for Pentax AF (520109)
Popular Photography rated this lens pretty well when it came out (I'd give you the link to the review, but apparently isn't cooperating at the moment).

Anyway, thought I'd share.

I have a mint Sigma 100-300 AF DL with Hood and Caps, $95 shipped and insured in the lower 48 using PayPal. It's been fun, time to move on though
