Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro for $250

I have always wanted a superzoom for a walk around lens but ended up covering this range with sharper Sony 16-50 2.8 and Sony 55-300 lenses. $250 sounds like a really good deal on this lens if you are in the market for a superzoom. Reviews say this lens compares favorably against the Tamaron 18-270 with better close focus capabilities. It sounds like the Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6 weakness is in the mid zoom range being soft wide open but sharpens up when stopping down a bit.

A Good review: http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/sigma-18-250mm-3p5-6p3-os-hsm-macro

I thought I would pass this deal along even though I decided not to buy one.
