Leupold 15-45x60

I would like some advice on the Leupold Wind River Sequoia Spotting Scope 15-45x60 Spotting Scope Angled Body. Does anyone own or has used one. I have been told that these are not as good as they are made out to be. I don't know too much about scopes,allthough Im assuming that they should have some quality optics in them being a Leupold. Originally I was looking at the meade 20-60x80 but I cant get that brand shipped here. What would also be in the same range as this scope.
Thanks for any info.

Scorpman.

How u doing normjackson, Looks like its going to be a Leupold 15-45x60
I like the Leupold 20-60x80 also, but I think the 15-45x60 is plenty for my needs.
Had a look at one today & liked what I saw.

stiff focuser, sharp only at 15x, dismal zoom, narrow field of view, no eye relief, junk.

How you going Luca. We tried this scope out on the range today & we found quite the opposite.Four of us had a play with it & were quite impressed actually. Will post more when I get a chance.
