10* field of view on that new Kowa 6.5x32 is amazing to say the least... The others are impressive as well. Not that I much care, but I do wonder if they are of Chinese or Japanese origin.

I've bought and tried quite a few this year as well, including the 8x25 Victory Pocket and I agree completely that it punches above its weight (and size!) and competes more with the 8x30-8x32s than a...
