Opticstar ED80S opinions

I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences with this scope:
It seems like a good deal, with the case included, CNC rings, dual speed Crayford etc.
Anyone had a look through one?

From the conversation they seem to know their stuff and are aiming to deliver good products. They said they could get me one of what I wanted but in a few months a better/improved variant was expected and that holding out would be better for me. They did explain the "new" scopes improvements.
So they seem pretty good and most people have only good things to say of them.

I've had a couple of ED80 f7.5 doublets in the past and liked them. Also a 90mm Triplet - and loved that, but it was a lot more expensive.
I'm weighing up between the 80mm f6.25 now and waiting for a second hand ED80 f7.5, but it's good to see no-one has said anything negative... yet!

Looks a good buy in the UK, however in North America the exchange rate puts it the same price bracket as so many others,DA.
There is a US connection.... Opticstar-ccd.com
