I agree. The last sale price was $459 when I got it.

It's a very good lens. The key feature it has over the Pentax 17-70 is very close focusing ability. I've taken some nice shots with it that probably fall into the pseudo-macro range. The Pentax has a mount seal, the Sigma does not. Sigma is more compact though both weigh about the same. Sharpness quite good on both but be sure you have the updated firmware installed on the Sigma. The original firmware messed up IBIS when shot in the 17 to 20 mm wide angle range. The Pentax maybe has a little better color and contrast. Yes, I have both lenses and like them both.
