Jack of all trades and master of none, as a pro photographer why would I want to shoot wildlife on such a lens when I have proper Nikon Glass, and it is no bigger than a finder scope, is there a real purpose for this scope

Leica just keep making pointless cameras because Leica lovers buy them, is this just a scope for W.O lovers,

I doubt this scope is aimed at the "pro photographers" though. I could see it for someone wanting to travel, do some astro and perhaps some wildlife shots. Having that dual purpose would make it fantastic to me - and my luggage restrictions.

1st vid is just a noisy over the top promo, as for the second I have seen that, I shoot for Classic Cars Magazine at most tracks in the UK Thruxton, Silverstone and more, you will never see a photographer using a telescope how would you control exposure and DOF

If this turns out to be nice optically I am in. Love it.

It'd be another imaging rig with a full frame mirrorless.
