I don't post here that often, and if this is a repeat, please delete.

Stumbled into this lens this morning, on sale at Amazon. Never seen it this cheap.

Awesome find! I'm totally lacking on the long end so I just might get it!

It is a surprisingly nice lens. I have one that I was considering selling but it they go new for this price I will probably keep mine.

How does this lens compare to the DA 55-300?

Not as good. I had the APO version of the Sigma for awhile. It suffered an aperture-blade death while sitting on the shelf... (probably suicide as it knew it was going to be sold after I got the 55-300).
