I'm not familiar with it, but all the 'new' production mirror lenses have not been equal to the Tamron 500mm adaptall lenses, ie 55B and 55BB. You can get one on ebay in good condition for about the same price. The Tokina 500mm f8 mirror lens is also quite good. I owned the Tokina and pics can be seen here:
