Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 SLD Aspherical DC Optical Stabilized (OS) Lens with Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) for Sony Digital SLR Cameras

Review: Always in search of a great lens deal for DSLR shooters, I stumbled upon a Sigma for the Alpha Mount that I had to write and tell everyone about. For those of you that don't know the price of this lens, that's perfect. For now we're going to talk about a relatively new lens from Sigma that has quite an impressive specification. And during the time you read this review ( you are reading, right?) I want you to estimate a price in your head of what you think this lens should retail for.
