The Optics Planet advertisement clearly states a 205ft field of view at 1000 yards. At the lowest magnification (whatever it really is) I measured 134ft. I chose this over other alternatives mainly because of the impressive FOV figure, so naturally feel ripped off.

Good clarity and zoom, compact and easy to use, seems like good quality. Better glass (BAK-4) than most in price range. Didn't come w/ tripod or hard case but has soft case and lens covers. You'll need a tripod. Eye relief at higher zooms not so good for me w/ eyeglasses.

I really needed an inexpensive, very lightweight, easy to carry scope to supplement other equipment I carry (bins, camera) on informal daily birding trips when lugging the larger scopes simply wouldn't do. This is perfect for my needs and the image quality is not discernably different from other small 50mm scopes my friends carry that cost 3-4 times the price!

I just got this scope for wildlife viewing and birding in the Canadian Rockies. So far after two outings, it has proven to be a great addition to my birding toolbox. The wide field of view at 12x power makes finding the subject easy and then zooming in to full 36x power is fairly easy. I find that the zoom eyepiece is a bit stiff and you have to hold the main body of the scope to change the magnification. The focus is also a bit stiff, but easy to opperate with one hand. Took some great pictures with my digital camera too. All in all it is a pretty good scope, not as easy to view through as some of the more expensive models, however when you put it in your backpack, you hardly know its there. Super light and easy to pack. Great for travel and strenous backpacking trips. Also good for day hikes and jaunts when you think you might see something interesting.
