Surprisingly sharp I must say! But the ghosting is horrible in the second picture!

I would say more that resolution is low but the CA control is suprisingly good for such an cheap and long tele-lens.

Tair 3C with tele-converter is a lot better though and plays in about the same price class.

off course that tair 3 is better, it has more complex optical scheme, but is probably 3 times heavier.
sharpness surprised me
what i don't like is that the minimal focusing distance is 10 meters, i'm not used to that, with oly mirror 500mm i have minimum focusing distance of 4 meters, so with this lens it was difficult to get used to 10 meters.
