OK, but misses the mark
 
Almost a wonderful thing. But no cigar.Pentax should be complemented on sticking their necks out with something nobody (that I know of) has done before. That said, if Pentax had pushed the design a bit farther, this thing could sell for a bunch of bucks.This is a big bright scope, 30mm tube, front focus objective (focuses closer than 25yds if you need it), uses one CR123 battery, quick focus eyepiece, and has a second focal plane crosshair.Mine zooms from 3 to 15 in aprox. 5-...

Pextax Electric Zoom
 
What a great scope. The 50mm objective and the 30mm(1.2") main tube gives so much light that I can see better with the scope at dust than I can without it. The clarity compared to my Leopold is the same. I love this electric zoom on my 300 Win Mag holds zero and the clicks are sharp. When hunting I am on the low zoom setting so I can quickly pick up my target then zoom in without ever taking the scope away from my eye. The zoom is smooth and moves at the same speed in both directions. I am ri...

Honest opinion
 
I bought this scope at the recommendation of an article on AccurateShooter.com and Amazon had it on sale (cheap); the reason for this I soon found out. I'm not one to simply bash a product, so I'll just get to what is wrong with it. First, the electric zoom would zoom out quickly, but took forever to zoom back in. Looking though it, it seemed as though it would "stop" at a different magnification when zooming in every time. I mounted it to my .243, a proven one-hole gun, to test it before I ...

Great Scope
 
Got this scope and it seems pretty functional. But.... The main problem (or issue) I have is that you can't go to a specific power. Say you want 10X magnification for repeatability, you don't know where that is. I gave it a 5 because it is a great scope, lets in a ton of light and works as advertised. It is kinda cool to play with. For some reason, I'm always adjusting my power setting.That all said, I'm not sure you'll want to have this on a hunting trip, or on a rifle that wil...

Another rotating rectile
 
Love the scope but rectile turned on my second shot on a .223. Small recoil gun and it lasted 2 shots...? I am going to send in for repair once. If it does it again, I will never buy Pentax again....of any kind. I love the zoom. It would be sweet for picking out hogs in the shadows.

Ultimate Smart Scope It Should Be Called...
 
http://youtu.be/B0Z40ywrMeUhttp://youtu.be/c_-N3LxMd8YPentax's unique "ultimate Zoom" scope has an electrically controlled power zooming feature. This works much like a power zoom on a larger SLR camera lens, except that it is controlled by a corded remote rather than buttons on the scope itself. Just press the + or - buttons to increase or decreasing the magnification level. This is great for a hunter as you can quickly move from a wide-angle field of view to a close-up of you...
