Have not taken it to the range yet,(the reason I rated it a four and not a five), but testing it out around the neighborhood it works very well. Objective is bright, zoom features and focus work super easily, and it mounts very simply to a tripod, (which is necessary to get full enjoyment from this instrument.) Great value for the cost.
Pros: Sturdy, bright, all controls work
Cons: none experienced yet
