"To the distinguished eye" Oooooo what does that mean?
The Zeiss is what, 3x the price? Is it 3x better then the Nikon ED??
At a measured 450 yards, the ED50 picked out a 0.25 inch black spot on a white sign. Not bad for a 50mm objective.
It's only shortcoming is the last 15 minutes of daylight, either dusk or dawn. Other scopes will be brighter. But once the sun is out, the scope shines.
