Kowa 883 still the best one? (1 Viewer)

The 30 - 60x WA. In Europe the scope body does not come with an eyepiece. In the US I believe is comes with the 20 - 60x. The downside is it is hard to get hold off so I was unable to really compare it with other similar size scopes before buying. Due to Covid I still haven't really had chance to. It is very good though, although I still use both my Zeiss 65mm Diascope and Vortex Razor 50mm a lot more because I can't be bothered to lug it around when birding. It is kept for twitches and when I am unlikely to be walking far with it.

I've found it excellent from the UK, when I had to send my dropped 883 to Germany for repair. An expensive service - don't let it get blown over in the wind! - but a thorough and friendly service.

Another very satisfied customer here! Received excellent customer service from Monika in Germany!
