I think you meant sigma.

Standard lo. Check for fungus, focusing and is the aperture blades working etc.

Motorised just means got af motor inside the lens. It's for those bodies that doesn't have af motor.
Os is optical stabilization which i believe needs no explanation.

must do a price check for every purchase, regardless whether brand new or from B&S.
especially for B&S, must determine the price difference whether it is worth to buy brand new or 2nd hand.

Since you are new, was going to suggest you get a new grey set from DD Electronics instead..... Could have been cheaper than 2nd hand plus you get warranty from the shop. Hope you got a good deal for your piece of glass. Enjoy!

Pretty much any lens could do tat if I'm not wrong even e kit lens 18-55mm
The 18-200mm is meant as an all rounder lens, it's convenient and covers from wide to tele range.
If u dun nd e far reach, other lenses would suit ur needs better than e 18-200
