Good find... Got it last time when it was $309, direct from buydig. Grabbed another one for my friend...

I had Canon 18-200 before this lens. I found Sigma is more versatile than canon as it is lighter, extra 50mm, fast HSM focus, comes with very nice hood. Although you have to sacrifice one third stop when you zoom out fully. Combined with external flash ( I have YN-468 II), I can use it for indoor without any difficulty in focus speed as YN-468 II has laser based AF Assist light and it is light weight also, makes everything perfect in balance.

Thanks OP!!! Repped!!!
