Once my favourite tool for bird watching... tack sharp, great colour rendering, unfortunatelly, heavy like a tank as well when you carry around a whole day...

We now prefere Swarovski spotting scopes for this purpose.

I'm always behind the times Rodolfo - this is the most modern scope I have. Unlike Winfried, I try not to cart it around too much. ;D

I've not much experience with the new Zeiss spotting scopes. What I've heard is that they are great!

Certainly dear Winfried, but with what they cost I think few can have much experience. . . :D
