I just wanted to say that I recently bought a Sigma 10-20mm lens from this seller on eBay, and the lens was exactly as described, shipped quickly, and was a very sharp copy. I also used to own a 170-500mm lens like the one for sale here, and I really enjoyed it.

I recently bought one of these used. It's quite good optically, and It's easier than expected to use as a hand-held lens.

I now have the Sigma 150-500mm, and although it is a bit sharper at 500mm, it is also much larger and heavier. The 170-500mm is much easier to hand-hold, and for that reason it may tend to get used more than the 150-500mm or the Bigma.
