- Well built and feature packed but quality of optics reflect lower price
I simply could not afford one of the top German brands so this was a good compromise.
It's really well made and build quality is good. Unfortunately at higher magnification the image quality is quite poor and it gets quite dark with quite a bit of colour distortion and lack of sharpness. At around 40 power it's very good.
Cheaper spotters have come a long way in recent times and it's still much better than anything else I have owned. I guess I really wont be happy until I have a Leica however as you can really tell the difference when looking through the things, particularly at higher magnifications.

- Great spotting scope glad I went with Vortex
The only complaint I have about it is the scope cover that is included with it. In reality you don't really need to have it on due to the rubber coating on the scope but I was wanting to put it on anyway.
Took a long time and patience to fit it but got there in the end.
Also great customer service and extremely fast postage from Ozscopes thank you. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
