Has anyone seen the difference in the Kowa 25mm eyepiece vs the 20-40mm eyepiece for the 66mm spotting scope.  Not sure if the zoom is worth the extra cost.

Also if you've used an angled scope prone would like to know if you prefer an angled or straight tube body.
 
Appreciated answers in advance.

apologies - I meant the 25X vs the 20-40X not MM as listed in previous posting.

Angled for bench rest and straight, for field has always been my way of thinking.  Both can and have been used in both roles.  I find the straight scope do be more universal, but opinions vary.

I'd opt for something that topped out at around 60x - that is if the scope could handle it.
