Tokina RMC 80-200mm f4 MD lens

I just bought a Tokina RMC 80-200mm f4 MD lens for $23 on eBay to round out the long end of a growing collection (Nex 16mm & 18-55mm, Industar-61 50mm 2.8, Minolta 50mm 1.7, 50mm 1.4, 28mm 2.8), based on a blog post:

Then I googled this forum hearsay:

"Searching for print on Canon Manual focus Zoom lenses I came across a Consumer Reports magazine that had performed a test of the top 25 zoom lenses in the 70-210/80-200 f/4 range. I remember that the Tokina RMC 80-200 f/4 took first place."

It all sounds promising - anyone have any experience of this cheap zoom?
