Any opinions or experience?

I've read elsewhere the optics and eyepiece on this unit are as good as the Nikon 50mm fieldscope. The difference being it's a non-interchangeabe, straight eyepiece model only.

Where did you read that?


My experience with Brunton optics has been that they make good products but, tend to overprice them. 


It certainly is a fairly ugly, boxy looking scope but, if its optics really are comparable to the 50mm ED Fieldscope and assuming you could find a good deal on the price, it would be worth at least considering.


The 18-38x zoom range is pretty comparable to Leupold's flagship 12-40x60 Gold Ring spotting scope that costs around $800 (for the non-ED version.)  I wonder if the ED glass on the Brunton would serve to effectively compensate for the 10 mm decrease in objective lens size?
