Bought to sit on a Sako Quad. Impeccable build quality; bright and clear optics; smooth, firm zoom; accurate and repeatable adjustments; generous and constant eye relief; deep objective "hood". Seems very similar to a VX3 2.5-8 Leupold, but better value. Ocular housing seems bulky relative to the [32mm] objective, and the standard adjustment turrets (interchangeable for other factory types) are a bit bulky, but that's being picky: I'd buy another one...
Pros: Build Quality, Optics, Eye relief, Zoom range
Cons: Bulky (if interchangeable) turrets
