   I recently ran the Kowa 88mm spotter with Prominar lens alsong side of the Swarovski 20X60X80. I am extremely impressed with the Kowa. Past 800 yards the Kowa shows more resolution and definition to my eyes.
 
  Anyone else tried the Kowa's?

  I want to ass this to the discussion
 
 
 
   "For birders willing to take the plunge for the very best optics at whatever cost, the top choices, in my view, are either the Kowa 883/884 or 773/774 or the Swarovski HD 80mm or 65mm scopes. Any of these top scopes will give you years of pure birding pleasure. Although the larger Kowa offers the brightest, sharpest image available from a conventional zoom scope under the toughest birding conditions, the small Swarovski still delivers the best image per ounce of any scope. Since I started using a Swarovski HD 65 five years ago, I find that I readily take it to places—such as the canopy of a Peruvian rainforest—where I would never consider lugging a larger scope."

The 88 Kowas are really "wow" , even after owning a Swaro.
The best scope per ounce in my opinion is the Nikon 50mm ED with the 20x WA eyepieces.
