OS is it worth paying 150 extra?

I have seen a couple of second hand Sigma 150-500mm lenses for sale recently and wondered if it was worth paying approx 150 more just to have OS built into the lens?

If the camera has built in image stabilization and I'm most likely to use the lens on a monopod/tripod is is worth me spending 150 more?

I have the older non OS 50-500mm and I am more than happy with it. The inbody SR is pretty good, the main difference is that you don't see a stable image in the viewfinder.

Probably even less of a problem when used with a monopod and you are supposed to turn IS/OS off when on a tripod anyway.
