In my opinion Kowa make superb spotting scopes that have excellent colour correction and superb build quality, ok so they suffer from stick paint after a few years and this example if of no exception but overall a proper Japanese spotting scope!
Overall its good, just a small amount of the typical sticky paint issue that all Kowa scopes get, compared to most it is very very slight. Put the cover on and you will never know :)
Perfect, everything works just fine
This scope has stunning optics that are extremely clean
