Rafael, Requena-Valencia- Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Calidad en la construccion para uso en ambientes agrestes, calidad de los objetivos disponibles y precio y tamaño de éstos. Más calidad y tamaño de pantalla.
Bad points:
El tamaño de la pantalla hace un pequeño resalte que molesta para usar el cursor, estoy acostumbrado a la E-3 donde toda la superficie es lisa.
