    SWAROVSKI OPTIK - dS

    I want one but I bet it will cost more than a small low mileage s/h car

    199p and LOC like this.
    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    Ouch. So all that clever tech hurts the light transmission. Standard z5 is a 90%. this is at 83%

    Intresting, I would like to have a play with one, not sure how keen, don't like batteries on scopes, one more thing to go wrong,
    Not aviable in USA or Canada, pity as I have a ten year safety award, due in May, and can pick pretty much what I want, (one of the perks, of running your own business) looking at a ATS or ATX 65mm spotter.
    I might ask if there is a demo model about, I can get a loan of.

    Ha ha the "ňuro answer to the Burrs Eliminator" and still a totally impractical turd. Really. Who the fucks seriously going to "hunt" with a 1kg+ scope.
    Clever, yes. Practical, never.

    I dunno. I can rather see you dressed in a tie and jacket using one of those like in the vid.

    I thought that the juxtaposition between the old world traditions of clinker boat and tweed and the new world technology rather strange. Sad, almost.

    He's hunting in a shirt and tie because he has to work straight after the hunt to pay off the scope

    Me. My NXS is almost a kilo. I'd far rather have a good quality scope with high magnification and reliable dialling than a small, light, low magnification number just because it's light. Plenty of other places where weight can be saved.

    No, not really. A ultrlight rifle with a submarine pig on top is still useless.
    The Z5 is the opposite, light and crisp with a mushy BT turret.
    The NXS is OK if you're Chris Kyle, but mediocre if you don't have a Hummer to lug it everywhere.

    Price in Europe is around E3900... thats about NZ $ 5700ish so it will be north of $8k once all the usual sharks have added their margin
