New Tamron 70-300. Is the price right?

Once upon a time, the 70-300 mm F4.5-6.3 was made by every company that made cameras. It was usually a couple of hundred bucks and in the bag with a nifty 50mm and a shorter budget zoom. All of Sony's most recent offerings of this type have come in above $1,000. This one is $549. Assuming it Is as good as the other recent Tamron zoom lenses, is it worth it to you?
