Had initially wanted a Vortex model no longer available, but settled on this because the great combination of lens quality at 25x, price, light weight.
We have not been disappointed and I would recommend this to others with similar criteria
Pros: short length and light weight make it easy to transport and use
Cons: viewing brightness dims at magnification greater than about 40x
