Pros: Great looking scope. Robust magnesium alloy, rubber armoured body feels light and very tough. Wide field of view is exceptionally bright, sharp and detailed right to the edge of the field. Superb performance throughout the zoom range. Excellent ergonomics. Centre-ring focus dial quick, easy and accurate. Compact and easy to handle for a full size spotting scope.
Cons: Very little to criticise here. Focus ring and eyepiece zoom dial perhaps a little on the stiff side (may ease up with use). Would be handy if eyepiece lens cover could be tethered to the eyepiece (easy to lose).
Price: GB£1,899 (c.€2,025) body + 30-60x Wide Angle eyepiece (20-70x high power eyepiece also available).
Rating: Highly Recommended
