I copied this from my optics planet product review.

Glass is inferior to my Leupold Mark AR Mod 1 1.5-4x. Illumination is not daytime bright, even on a cloudy rainy day at "11." The mil-sqare reticle is so tiny it is unusable. Windage and elevation adjustments are too easy to move and too fine, it's too easy to go past where you want and I often end up clicking 2 or 3 instead of 1 when counting. It's no wonder these scopes are on the way out. Diopter adjustment is nice though compared to the locking ring screw method on my Leupold.

It's honestly just not a great scope by any definition, especially at $600. It even just feels rough, cheap, and poorly finished in my hands. I would put it on par with the VX-freedom line in terms of quality or the entry Vortex tiers.

Sure it can go down to 1x while others are 1.25 or 1.5, but it fish bowls and distorts so bad that I prefer the flat crisp image of the Mark AR at 1.5x.
