Phoenix 100mm macro lens. Reviews said it was cheaply made, but had very good optics. And that seems to be the case. Feels like a toy, but it works pretty well.

Good shot !, I totally agree on your comments !. Sells under various marks .. Phoenix, Vivitar, and probably others too, but all made by Cosina and rebadged. An el cheapo, but capable of excellent results. I prefer the manual model, better for macro anyway.
There's a good review of the "Plastic Fantastic" here for anyone interested ...

Excellent shot!
I'll take IQ, over lens quality any time.
