I simply think that this scope, combined with the 25-60 wide-angle eyepiece, gives the sharpest image around. Leica is close. I used to be a diehard Swarovski user, but their switch to the modular system has been a mistake in my experience.
Amazing glass. I prefer this over a Swaro STS 65 as the Kowa has less vignetteing at the periphery especially under 60X mag. Primary uses are wildlife viewing and target shooting.
The first Kowa scope (TSN-3) I bought in 1988 is still going strong. For my second spotting scope, I figured I couldn't go wrong with this company, and I was right. This is an awesome spotting scope which is sharper and brighter than my first.
I got the Kowa 88 scope for birding and wildlife spotting after trying some of the other super premium brands. Was really bowled over by the clarity of the image with no edge distortion. I am really happy with the scope and zoom eyepiece.
bought for digiscoping with Nikon D610. Also purchased the TSN-PZ. Getting great shots at 100+ yards. Be sure to Watch for Vignetting. Nice optics plenty of accessory options.
Am mainly amateur photographer. Spouse a very well skilled birder (and me hanger-on). So, we have spent lots of time with dedicated birders and spent some big bucks on birding tours, so have had lots of chances to see and evaluate many scopes.
