What should I offer for these lenses?

I was visiting my local camera store 4 months ago and the owner went into the back and brought out 3 brand new old-stock A-mount lenses and offered to make a deal on them. They're just taking up space in his stockroom. Sony's current list price in ():

I told him I wasn't interested because I already have lenses of comparable quality (Sigma 50mm EX and Tamron 90mm macro).

Now, 4 months later, I'm having dangerous thoughts about how nice it would be to have a wider angle macro and how nice it would be to use all those A99ii OSPDAF focus points. I absolutely do not care they're all screw-drive lenses. I have US$1000 I can spend.

Can anyone offer their thoughts? How do you determine the worth of brand new old stock lenses?
