Good deal on a lense, anyone here use a Tamron 28-200 XR?

Doing a bit of looking online for a lense for my new K10D and found a discontinued Tamron 28-200 XR going for $250C, the store that has it had it listed for $529. They didn't have the spec's on the web page so the guy is trying to find it for me and get back to me, says its the last one they have. From looking at a Sony mount of the same lense I am pretty sure its 3.8-5.6, the 3.5-6.3 model is going for $399 down from $699.

Has anyone here used either of these? Both are attractive prices, the best I have found so far.

I have the 3.8-5.6. It's a nice lens, very good walk around. I've done shots with it blown up to around 13" x 19" and they look good. I think it's far better than the 70-300. I got mine on ebay (new) for $200 I think.

Thanks - unfortunatly the sales person just called me back and the last one is gone, so it's on with the hunt. I have picked up some good deals on film slrs on ebay so I will be looking there as well. The same store also has a Sigma 28-200 on sale for $249 that is normally at $369 so I will check that out too.
