Not familiar with the lens but the name rang a bell, so I've done some quick gargling and come up with... little. The Miida may be rebadged from the same lensmakers who produced Vivitar glass. In my quick search I found no negative comments. I'd go with my rule of thumb: If it costs less than a sandwich or hamburger, buy it -- it if costs more than a fancy large pizza, think real hard about it.

I'd risk the Miida at US$15-20, no more than that, not unless I can actually try and test it. Simple test: Shoot a hard-edged object that's right next to a bright light. Chimp the shot, increasing magnification as you look at that hard edge. If you see color fringing there, skip it.
