    Good morning OTAP! Over the weekend my mom called me to say she found a camera lens at a yard sale in Montana. She went out there with my step dad to visit my brother after hitting up Sturgis.

    She found a canon mount Sigma APO 170-500mm DG lens at a yard sale. They originally wanted $200 but my mom haggled them down to $150. I'm hoping it's a somewhat decent lens but for $150 can't complain. My mom said it looks like it has never been used.

    Is this lens any good?
