Love this Spotting Scope / Kit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on March 3, 2013
Overall I really like this spotting scope and the kit as well. Great scope. Easy controls. Well made. Nice hard and soft cases. Tripod not hard to mount, but would have preferred a non-detachable base for the screw. Not a huge deal. Overall a winner. Glad I sprand for the kit.
Pros: Clear, easy controls, tight, well made
Cons: Tripod mounting a bit clunky...
Would recommend: Yes

Good Product

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NV Written on September 8, 2011
Good scope, but the tripod will not lock into place, and it jiggles. It totally distracts from the over all quality and use of the product. I cannot believe that quality control let this kind of design flaw get by. Just buy the scope, forget the tripod it's junk!
Pros: clear optics, good features
Cons: tripod is horrible...
Would recommend: Yes

Leupold Kenai 30x, 25-60x80mm HD Spotting Scope Straight Gray/Black

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on September 3, 2011
good scope with good clarity. I'm not sure why you have to mount the scope on an mounting plate before mounting it into the tripod?? very awkward. Also no fine adjustment knob on the tripod.
Pros: very clear image
Cons: poorly designed tripod and attachment...
Would recommend: Yes

Leupold Kenai 30x, 25-60x80mm HD Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OK Written on February 10, 2011
This product is one of the best Leupold products I've purchased. Recently learned that a compact spotting scope is not advantage over binoculars while scanning a mountain for elk. At the range in several different light conditions, this scope is very clear, easy to focus and the eye relief is good. For the money, it's a real bargain, I only wish I'd bought a spotting scopee of this caliber years ago.
Pros: Amazing power and clarity
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Leupold gets it right

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on August 19, 2010
I've said that if Leupold brings out an HD spotting scope, I'd buy it. Well, they did and I did and here are a few observations. I hope they're helpful. The barrel mounted focusing ring was somewhat tight and does cause a bit of jiggling when focusing but not enough to become frustrating. The threaded lenses lock-up tightly on the body. The 25-60x lens clarity is adequate but the excellent 30x wide angle lens makes this scope shine. If we could get Leupold to offer a 25-50 wide angle accessory lens, this spotter would be a barn burner. With the 30x lens focusing on a city water tower at 973yds the Kenai rendered the image and it's detail crystal clear. At 303yds, 1 inch sign lettering was easily read. At the range at 500yds, I could not see the 6.5mm bullet holes with 30x but I could with 60x. This was at 7:30am and,in all fairness,low light conditions. Also, with the 30x lens looking at the early morning shadows at the range tree line, I could readily see into the darkest of them. This is usually a good indicator of quality glass. Yes,the box is stamped Made in China. If you can't live with that then your next stop is likely an HD from Swarovski, whose optics are near breath-taking, or Kowa or Zeiss at up to four times the price of the Kenai. All in all: High Definition is the way to go, Leupold is still a reputable, consumer oriented American company and the quality Kenai gives you your money's worth....and maybe a little more.
Pros: A quality spotting scope
Cons: 25-60x...
