Does anyone have any thoughts on the Brunton Echo 12-36x50? I'd like to get a compact for when I don't want to tote my Sandpiper around. I realize the Leupold 15-30x50 is the standard bearer for compacts but I'm not wanting to part with $400 unless Obama will give me a bailout. Thanks.

Actually, the Nikon ED50 would be the "standard bearer" for compacts.  It is also the most expensive at ~$750 (though I have seen demo models sold for $450).
Brunton has two lines of decent optics.  The Epoch (which are horribly over-priced) and the Eterna (which actually offer a pretty good value). Their lower-end stuff has always struck me as being just that - lower end. I have however, admittedly never seen this particular spotting scope so; who knows?  Maybe it's actually better than what Brunton usually puts out at this level. 
I doubt it, but it can't hurt to look.
