Well used but @ 299.00 it maybe worth a punt for someone!

Is there much difference, optics-wise, between this lens and the later HSM ones?

Yes, the newer HSM OS version is a good deal sharper wide open. Personally I wouldn't touch this one unless you really must have 500mm but don't have the funds for either the 150-500mm or 50-500mm OS.

I have this lens, and its not a bad thing. Its not as sharp as the later versions but its still usable.
