Need help quick! sigma 10-20mm

I know someone selling this lens for $350 Australian ($300 US) perfect condition. Is this a good price? I've always wanted a wide lens. Is this the old version? I'm not sure how much they are worth. Thanks! They need to know tonight.

Well I just got one about 2 weeks ago for $300 AUD ($270 US) and I was stoked. The going price in australia is about $730 AUD. I was prepared to pay $350 AUD for it. They don't come up for sale used very often in pentax mount. They are a good build quality so you would be unlucky if anything went wrong with it. Mine also came with a Sigma DG UV filter worth $50 USD which was a bonus for me because I needed one for my Sigma 17-70mm.

If I were you I would buy it. Better than buying one off ebay which you cannot test and could be a complete dud.

That's a really good price. There's a discussion about this lens going on here at the moment:

Too bad this lens is 5.6 at the long end, but you're probably buying it to shoot at the short end anyway.

i bought mine SH for around $500 on consignment, but it may as well have been brand new.
