    If it is actually a Sony 70-300mm ... then grab it for the $200 whatever, it is worth much more than that.
    Sony 70–300 mm F4.5–5.6 G SSM

    If it is labeled "macro", then it is not a Sony.

    ... unless it is the Sony 75-300mm

    Ok, that makes more sense for the price asked ... though if it was the 70-300mm that would have been an awesome steal !!

    Yeah i really got my hopes up when I seen the 1000 price.
    It may be a cheap lens but it looked like
    It's got a 4.5 in the reviews

    I had the Sony 75-300mm and it was pretty good for the price.
    Sony stuff gets pretty expensive once you start creeping up to the good stuff.

    I've seen some of their prices.
    It seems they think a lot about their products $$$

    The Sony G series lenses are very very high image quality.
    With all brands, you pay a price for good glass ... even the old stuff.
