so actually how good is the 80-200mm 2.8?

Hey there....
I'm considering going after a used 80-200mm 2.8 thats on an online auction site at the moment.

I've always been after one of these beauties but am curious what a decent price for it might be? it looks in pretty good nick and the description says everything clear and working properly.

anybody know a good ball park figure on this one??

I have been interested in this lens also. There are some that say it is over-rated and that the sigma 70-200mm f2.8 is very close in quality. I am waiting to see what the tamron 70-200mm f2.8 images are like. It should be released in the summer for pentax. it's only available for canon now, nikon next, then pentax. reviews for 80-200mm:
