Can anyone illuminate me regarding a fair price for the non-OS version of this lens? Owner states it's 4 years old and used very little (aren't they all?) .

Kicking tires is all, thanks!

It's in the lens price database, Lens$db: http://tinyurl.com/jcolwell-lensdb. See tab "STT".

I bought one used (DG version, non-OS) a few months ago for 1500$. The lens was in very good condition with no paint chip and almost no mark or scratch. It came with a B+W UV filter.
Before pulling the trigger, I did a lot of research and all the DG, non OS versions I came across where between 1250$ and 1600$. The lowest price was for a lens with a lot of mileage (paint chip,...) and even a small scratch on the front element.

Whatever price just make sure you get a sharp copy as there may still be some soft ones around. I bought mine used on FM about 4 years ago and the seller agreed to let me try it for a week. Needless to say, I didn't return it and I still have it.

I bought mine in August from adorama for 1600. I just could not find one in decent condition listed here or locally.

+1
on johnsarra remarks... i owned three different copies... all had focus issues, sigma could not correct in each case.
FWIW, go find a used 300 2.8, costs more but you will never regret.
