    If it's reasonably priced go for it. Good glass and excellent build.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    If your happy with the magnification and objective lense size then go for it. There as good as any modern alternative, just a little heavier.

    Go for it mate. I have just bought a Swarovski Habitch 6x42 it must be 15 years old at least it is brilliant 150. When you think that is about the cost of a basic Bushnell brand new.

    Was in Ladds Crediton last week he had a 8x56 Habitch and was near as mint (slightest of ring marks) steel tube 1" 450.

    So 500 is a bit too much.
