I like my copy of it. I definitely would recommend it, and those prices seem pretty reasonable.

well, you cannot buy new ones from shops in Australia any more , you have to preorder them from Distributor and wait few months.

this is very odd, I did purchase from eBay in US, Canada, UK, Germany and France and I live in Australia, had no problem at all.
I did search International listings on AU eBay.

It's a bit more expensive but you can now purchase this lens directly from Sigma for the Pentax mount. It has been unavailable for awhile but they just started selling them again yesterday.

(I'm from the US, not sure about the availability outside of the US)
