It does not have any tunnel vision, or at least none that I could see.

The turrets are pretty decent.  The feel is good, and they are resettable.

The resistance is higher than on ER scopes with covered caps.

That's a big plus, I don't like my ER turrets (with covered caps).

Sounds like this model would make one heck of a great scope for a whitetail rig ILya. Do the new Plex reticles look heavier than the ones in the ER series ? I really like my new Leica ER scope and the reticle is close to being perfect for my needs, but I wouldn't mind if they were a little thicker and also have the outer thick bars a little closer to the center

"It is 13 ozs, not 12.  Typo."


Thank you sir, but do you mean their typo? I took that number from a download at the Leica site.

Why do they list the smaller 1-5 as heavier? Is that a typo as well?

No 40mm? Why a jump from 32 to 50?

I have not seen the download from their site.  13ozs is what they told me and the scope definitely felt light.

There will very likely be an additional model, somewhere along the lines of 2-10x40.

I've spoken to some folks that I know from Leica and they are only a 10 minute drive from me. Their intention was two fold. One and primarly, was to design this line for "American hunters and shooters" and to "fill in the gaps" from their ERi line. For all intensive purposes, I think they pretty much nailed it.

If they do make that size, they would clean up on it IMO. A 2-10 x42 would be perfect. I've seen more and more scope manufacturers offering that size as it's the perfect, all around size, to give you plenty of low light performance without too much bulk. A 42mm can be mounted low enough to still get a good cheek position without having to go with tall rings/bases.

Roy that is exactly why I chose the Swaro 1.7-10x vs the 2-12x.  Being low is much more important to me than 2 more x on the top end. 

This sounds like a neat line Leica is coming out with.  Cannot wait to see them.

Anybody know answers to these?

This line of scopes is noticeably lighter than the ER series.  How were they able to save weight?

What american company is doing the assembly?  

What/how will warranty work be handled?  US, or Germany?
