Tokina SZ-X 630 MF 60-300mm f/4-5.6

Does anyone have any experience with this lens and how it may compare to a Tamron or Sears brand in the same range or perhaps the SMCP-FA 100-300mm?
Any insights are greatly appreciated.

It's decently sharp but lacks contrast and tends to flare a bit compared to my Pentax lenses. Also with this large of zoom range the SR focal length setting becomes more of an issue, so you'll want to probably modify it for your expected zoom.
