Just curious if anyone owns a nikon ed60 or has ever used one? Wanting to know how the picture quality and low light performance is. I own a Leupold golden ring 15-30x50 and is great for backpacking but i am looking for a little more zoom power.

I have a Nikon ED50 and love it. It beats any Leupold spotter I've looked through in low light, the sequoia and 12-40 gold ring. Every review I could find will show it beating the Leupold compact.

I currently am using the Nikon Fieldscope ED60. Overall i would say that the edge to edge sharpness is pretty good, however if your looking for a scope to outperform your Leupold in low light situations, I don't think you will be all that impressed. And once you crank this scope beyond 40X, it lacks the light gathering capability to see the definition your probably looking for.
