I have one of these and find it to be an outstanding value given the price. Not mentioned in the video is that a nice sunshade and lens covers are included. Like the reviewer, I'm not real keen on first focal plane reticles, especially for general use. However I bought this the put on a .224 Val with a 24" heavy barrel. I'm in AZ and the mirage can get pretty bad, so it's nice to be able to dial down the power without changing the reticle substension. As for chromatic aberration, it's not really as big deal in a rifle scope as it is in a photographic lens. It's removal usually requires another element or two of premium glass and most all budget optics with high magnification have some chromatic aberration.

I tend to be partial to Vortex, being a Wisconsin property.  :)
