An acquaintance offered his 24-85 Macro to me for $200 because he doesn't use it much anymore and knew I was in the market for a faster mid range zoom and also a macro lens. I have read mixed reviews on the lens, but many seem to think the macro capapbility is worth it.

Is this a bargain? Or should I take a pass?

Thanks for any advice you may have to offer.
