just got a manual sigma 75-300 - what to do keep or sell ?

Hi guys, was wandering around the local car boot sale and came upon a sigma 75-300mm lens for a good price. its an f4.5/5.6-22, but I'm really wondering is it worth keeping as i already have a pentax 55-300 and could probably sell it making a little profit. does this lens have any particular carachteristic that will make it special in any way ?

its a sigma zoom-(lamda symbol) II it can have the aperture controlled by the camera so is a pretty decent lens for a modern pentax dslr

You;ll find the 55-300 no doubt the superior lens, and the Sigma won't be worth all that much.

If you don't mind, can you use it for a little while and review it for the lens database?
It isn't in there at the moment.
