The Meopta chap at the Bird Fair reckoned it was very good (he would wouldn't he), but wasn't quite up to the excellence of the MeoStar 82 HD.

Surprised haven't seen more reviews on these scopes or the Meopro binos. Curious about how this scope compares to the S2

There are rumors that the 80 HD was developed for the military market to be sold at volume and the 82 HD was for the civilian birding market.
The 80 HD is cheaper and not quite the equal of the 82 HD.
Many military observation devices these days are electo-optical so the market is shrinking, Zeiss 72 HD not withstanding (sniper spotter market is a whole different thing).
