Great price

I find it amazing I'm in HK and can never find such bargains but the stock sold overseas comes from here and works out cheaper than all the places I can find locally!!

Good price for a lens that you not often find on the used market.

The price is basiclly $500 off from the big stores and you need to find out if the lower price is worth having no warranty or whatever type of warranty is offered, A typical warranty will cover manufacturing defects not wear and tear. Buying extra insurance costs extra money. Read the fine print and understand how much coverage is worth to you. In some places Sigma offers free checking and cleaning ones a year lifelong. In the long run a couple extra bucks are worth it, but on the other hand an instant saving of $500 is not too bad - assuming the lens is in perfect condition when it arrives.
Buying the lens on eBay in mint condition will also not include a warranty
