My best guess is 475 - 550 (private sale).

as that's the same as the Pentax DA 12-24 (?) 2nd hand prices are around the 550 mark at present for them, Samsung branded lenses usually go for slightly less than the Pentax versions, so anything under 450 and you've got a bargain. I think it was about 550 new a couple of years ago, so if someone was ignorant of the 2nd hand market and the recent prices on new ones, they'd probably take 350, in which case laugh all the way to the bank...
Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...

Remember also that the Sigma is FF compatable whereas the Pentax 12-24mm is not.

No use atm but it maybe one day.

Also, remember to give it a good tryout as (like the 10-20mm) there were quite a few duff ones (very soft at the edges)

If they paid around 400-500 for one I think they'd be glad for around 400, but start with 350.
