Tokina 500mm mirror lens

Any thoughts on this?

https://www.dpreview.com/news/4974074019/tokina-announces-new-250-500mm-f8-reflex-telephoto-lens-with-six-aps-c-full-frame-camera-systems

I know it's slow, and I know it will have weird bokeh, but I thought about it as a light and cheap travel lens for occasional wildlife stuff. I know these mirror lenses have been around for a long time, but maybe IBIS makes them more of a viable option. Or maybe the image quality will just be too bad. What does everyone think?
