Traded off an 8-32 NFbr for this proto 6-24x35mm without ill a few years ago, one of the best trades I have ever made! Back then the IORs where cheap and I only have $750 into this one but there aint no way I would sell it for twice the price....The glass is that good!! The other 2 6-24x30mm IORs are not far behind in glass quality but IMHO are noticably better than any Conquest or Bushnell I've ever looked through.
I had to pay a little more for the 3-18SFP but it too has some great glass and I like the dot in the center even better than the old MP-8
I still prefer the old fixed 12x Leupolds for short range work but when it comes to reaching out and touching something the IORs have worked great for me with better glass than a NF and ½ the cost. The MP-8 fits my shooting style like a glove.
I should update the pic as there has been a chinese firedrill done with the scopes and a 3-18 added
