Agreed, but I prefer the straight lens because it is quicker to orient to the target.
BTW, a friend and I have identical Leica 77 spotters, both with 10-60x power. Only difference is mine is straight, his is angled. We have compared them side by side and we both agree, mine is a tiny bit more clear than his at 500M.
