While my normal year of hunting can consist of many different types of hunting from the desert to the mountains and abroad, I change my optics out regularly almost every 12 months. I have never tried Zeiss due to most of their spotters having an angled only spotter. I have been on the fence about trying an angled eyepiece spotter for years. I guess just old habits. I went for it this year and I am very pleased with this spotter. I have used all of the major high end optics and this spotter is a keeper in my opinion. Considering that this is not the top of the Zeiss offering, it still lives up top quality glass. Don't over look this optic, especially for the money.
