I'm willing to bet he got himself a $555 achromat same as any other, maybe a sharp well made one, but no ED glass in it.

In fact, I'll be willing to measure the color error on this lens if someone wants to send it here and report honestly what it is, or you can send it to Yuri at TEC and I know he will measure and report honestly.
