In my opinion Kowa make superb spotting scopes that have excellent colour correction and superb build quality, ok so they all suffer from sticky paint after a few years and this example if of no exception but overall a proper Japanese spotting scope!
Has the typical Kowa sticky paint issue that causes it to rub off. not that it can be seen if you buy/fit a case is on anyway :)
Perfect, everything works just fine
This scope has clean optics
