    did i get a good deal?

    just picked up a sigma 150-500 lens off ebay for $700 used, but looks in mint condition with original box and all parts. thought it seemed like a good price?

    Hard to tell without seeing some output from the lens. It may be a good buy or it may be a "pup" if it was a "bad copy". How it looks on the outside is irrelevant to how it performs on your camera, so let us know how it goes.

    Any deal is only good, if you get good use out of the product. No matter what you pay, is not worth it, if you don't use it.

    I just bought a new one from my local Camera House store for $1099, (which comes with 2 years warranty) so you saved nearly $400 .

    I have this lens and one bit of advice I can give you, it loves light. No light, no fun. Oh and start doing weights if you gonna handheld for any amount of time.
    Cheers,
