Sigma 35-200mm f/4-5.6

I just bought this lens (Sigma 35-200mm f/4-5.6) on E-Bay and was wondering if anyone has any experience with it. I can't find anything through Google that is of any help. All I saw were references to the 35-200 for Minolta MD. Basically, is it worth the $20 I spent?

sorry if this is an old topic by forum standards, but i have one of these lenses as well, got it for a steal while getting a spare OM2n body just in case... Just came with the package for around $20. Haven't shot with it yet either, i cannot find any information on this lens either, keep us updated if you get any shots with it - and i will do likewise.. I might save a couple of my last frames for a small test shoot this week, just to see how it goes..

It has some very slight fungus, but that just adds character

For future reference (i am sure some others may find this post of some use if they stumble upon this lens of no information).

the lens works fine, a little bit of fungus didn't impair any of my shots, i have only tested it in pretty poor weather conditions (overcast, rainy, and actually flooding), so i am yet to really find out its true capabilities. But here is one of my first shots with it.

you may see its a bit soft at the top of the image - i don't believe thats an issue with the lens as its the only frame with such a thing in it, it might be the fog laying around the actual scene (it was misty) and/or the stupid lame people which scanned this shot.

From my other shots with this lens, it isn't all too bad, i hope to test its true capabilities soon when the weather clears up i can go out and about.
