I'd say conventional scopes will continue to be around for a long time to come.
Have you looked at the specs on this tthing? Im as old school as they come and grew up rangefinding with fenceposts before milling was real common. Most areas with fencing I can get real close with nothing helping. In fact the 160 buck I killed at 350 this year the spotter gave me 490. I saw the fence and went nope. Shot him for 360 and he was 350. Spotter read display wrong. It happens. But I will take every bit of help I can get which come to think about it this would be another instance when this scope would be better. I agree electronics suck. But this technology is going to massively cut the time needed for a shot and elevation wise will be as accurrate as you are since your bc/drop/atmosphere data is what it will use.
Read the release this changes things.
