Should I buy this lens is it worth it

I am wanting a zoom with a better zoom. Right now I have a 50-200 but I like to zoom in on wildlife. Would this be a good purchase? Thanks for any input.

Sigma DL AF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 autofocusing zoom lens

As always, the lens database is probably the best resource for lens questions:
Sigma 75-300mm DL Macro 1:4-5.6 "A" lens Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database

It looks like it's a manual focus lens. I'd recommend this instead:
SMC Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database (or you can get the DA L version to save money).
