I was fortunate enough to be able to test this scope pretty early on and to say that I like it would be a major understatement.

I have posted the review on OpticsTalk for the time being:

I will likely make a few minor edits and then I will also post the article here as well (here).

In the meantime, here is a short summary copied directly from the article:

This scope is absolutely a competitor for the alpha makers and, while not cheap, is a comparative bargain at $2500 street price.  Vortex will most likely do well with this design.  It is heavier than I would like and in terms of pure image quality it is not quite as good as the best (Premier 5-25×56), but it is close enough to compete.  I have looked at quite a few high end tactical scopes over the last few years and optically this scope would not be at the bottom of the pack.  The overall design is superb and this scope is remarkably easy to get behind.  I did not have Hensoldt and Kahles on hand to compare, but it is up there.  All of the other scopes in this category I have seen to date are not quite as forgiving of eye position.
