I've read that most of the C5's are good, some great, but haven't heard of any particularly bad ones.
I picked up an open box C5 spotting scope on amazon for $350 and am hoping it wasn't a lemon returned for poor optics.
I figured it's worth the risk since amazon will accept a return should it be so-so where buying used from an individual you are typically stuck with your purchase.
Really wanted it for a travel scope and the soft case and tripod mounting hole are a plus.
I owned a classic C90 and was underwhelmed.. focus was awkward and planetary views soft. Hoping the 5 will be a lot better.
