I have one and am very pleased with it. I can use it for extended times and never suffer eye strain. It's compact for tossing into your day pack. They sell for $999.00. Sounds like a good deal to me.
Buy this. Better than anything Leopold or Theron makes. Nikon just launched thier lifetime warranty and I know they take care of you on the fieldscope because I fell and broke my ed50 and they sent me a new one back to me.
Dave, that sounds like a pretty good deal to me. I have that Leupold spotter and have been really happy with it. I've borrowed/used some physically bigger scopes from Swaro and Vortex that were fantastic optically, but depending on budget and size constraints they may not be the best fit. Optics opinions are many and varied, but in my limited experience and opinion the Leupold you're considering is a good one.
