Pros
  • Beautifully designed; brilliant optically.
Cons
  • Expensive.
My son is lucky enough to have the ED version and it is a very fine, lightweight scope. The zoom eyepiece is itself rather bulky but expensive looking (as it should be for the price!) but does give a very wide view for this kind of eyepiece. I don't think the image drops off much at 60x in sharpness, just in brightness.

Pros
  • Compact sharp and bright; easy to use and carry; waterproof; incredibly well crafted feel and appearance. Useful extra zoom ability to a very useable 75x. Wide angle eyepiece an utter delight to use.
Cons
  • Not as light as a 60x scope but - amazingly - equally almost as compact.
