I too checked all the top line scopes and chose the Kowa TSN-823.  I chose
the Kowa for the bright,sharp optics and reasonably light weight. However
whilst to my eye it was a good as the others or better, now I attach a
camera to my scope giving me an 800mm lens I wish I had bought the Leica.
The latest craze on Birds-pix  is a Leica scope and a
20x eyepiece with a Nikon Coolpix 990 pressed against the scope. The shots
that are published are amazing.
For perfect optics I would consider the Leica. You only want to spend this
much dough once!
