Sigma Lens question

Just picked up a minty Sigma 28-70 UC Zoom lens. 3.5-4.5. Can't find much about it. Anyone have this lens? Is it a nice lens?

It's a very average lens. It won't blow your socks off, but it's not terrible either. It's basically their version of a kit lens. Average in every meaning of the word.

The Pentax kit lens is significantly sharper with snappier contrast than this lens.

as much as possible, get something that is of constant aperture speed, with the exception of the Sigma Ultra-Wide zooms. the f/2.8 version of that Sigma is way better.
