Not for a pawn, IMHO.  After all, you get no service like in a camera
store.  This particular lens was made in 4 diff. versions, each one by
a different manufacturer. Versions #2 and #3, both with a 62mm filter
size, are considered the best. The price would be reasonable for either
of these two in near-mint condition, if purchased from a camera store,
or from a reputable dealer who offers a tryout period and a money back

Oh, the mysteries of pawnshop pricing!  Were they in similar condition?
