   If your inquiring about the 1" model there are a couple reviews at the bottom of this page.
 
 
   Here's some info on the 30mm model.
 
 
   Although I've never handled either one,from what I've read on many posts I'd be seriously considering one if I needed a scope of that configuration.

I wonder why those two scopes vary almost $400 and there isn't that much difference between the two?

I think there are several variables to consider, since it may be used for dangerous game. The "roll" of the scope in terms of image curvature bothers me as I look through the one inch tube version while moving it side to side. It is not nearly as flat at the old Leupy 1.5-5 for example, and reduces the usuable field of view on a potential running shot. It will probably stand up to hard use, and hard recoil, as I have had good luck with a 1-4 Nikon in that regard. CS will be ok as well. They will be good, but good enough for me involves the whole package. JMHO Steve

Almost every true 1x scope I've looked through seems to have pretty bad edge distortion. Oddly, when you run it up in power a bit, it mitigates it some. My Weaver 1-3x for example, is bad at 1x, but at 1.5x, the distortion is far less noticeable.
