In my opinion Kowa make superb spotting scopes that have exellent 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 the normal 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
