NO I'm talking about using you eyeballs and looking at a obviously shoddily
made product.
With an awful ribbed cheap metal focusing collar.
Cheap looking painted on numbers.
And priced higher than gorgeous Nikon or Canon glass.

Sigma made a better finished product.
This glass looked like Vivitar, Tokina or Tamron.
Tamron mainly.
