Phoenix 28-80 AF

Has anyone actually bought and used this lens Phoenix Zoom W/A-Telephoto 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 AF Lens P09575 B&H

I'm curious... I have the Phoenix 28-210 and I really like it, for what it is. (A slow, cheap, superzoom, heavy on the CA but with surprising sharpness and color rendition).

The bargain-basement lenses always pique my curiosity...

That's not an AF lens- I think the listing must be off. What the meant to say is that it works with AF cameras.

Looks like there are a few reviews of it:
