    How much should this lens cost?

    I'm interested to know how much a lens like this would be worth. As I have seen one discounted but I am interested to know what its regular price is. I think that the model is about 2 years old, not too sure.

    Sigma Macro Lens 28-90mm, F3.5-5.6
    Model no - 606020401

    I'm not after anything exact, just a rough guess woud be fine.

    I cannot say off-hand but I usually log on to B & H Photo Video and check their price first.

    Check out their site... do a product search for it and see what they're selling it for.

    Here's a place I always check for lens reviews and costs.
    This is the area specifically for Sigma Zooms: http://www.fredmiranda.com/reviews/showcat.php?cat=37

    Unfortnately they don't have that lens listed.

    Here's some samples with it:

    Sigma does not even list it on their site:
    http://www.sigmaphoto.com/lenses/lenses_all.asp

    So I would assume it's an old out of production model.

    Even so, with the range (28-90) and high fstop, I would not pay more than about $150-175 for it, and I would try it on my camera first.

    You can buy one of the new Sigma or Tamron 28-70/2.8 for about $350, or even $250 used, that would be much better.

    Thanks buddy that helps me greatly. I figured that it probably was an older lens. I apreciate your research. Cheers.
