Sightron Big Sky scopes. are they as good as i'm hearing?

I've been looking into a couple different scopes, and this scope gets nothing but great reviews. glass is very good, on par with Ziess conquest/Leupold. tracks/holds it's zero as good as any scope. these are the comments I've been reading. anyone have one of these or any experience with them?

we don't seem to have much of a Sightron following, bumped this to try again.

I've got several Sightrons but don't have a Big Sky to comment on. The new SIIIs are great though, just like all the reviews say they are.

DaveWilson, I too have one of the Sightron SIII's, the 6-24x50, it's a GREAT scope. Never even looked thru one of the Big Skys so I can't help you out there.
