Just got the Bushnell Excursions (http://www.cstactical.com/Store/OPTICS/Spotting-Scopes/Bushnell/Bushnell-15-45x60mm-Excursion-FLP-Spotting-Scope.html) in-stock. I'll be doing a review on them in the next week or two.

This KONUS is catching on with High Power shooters. I have the 100mm objective model and it does everything I need it to do. http://www.creedmoorsports.com/store/product.php?productid=889713&cat=561&page=1

I have the Konus Konospot 20x60 80mm. Very good clarity at high magnification. I like the focus knob separate from the eyepiece. Some scopes, like my Bushnell Sentry have focus and zoom on the eyepiece. Eye relief on the Konus at high magnification is very short though. I have to remove my glasses to get my eyeball close enough to the lense to see. Overall, I'm very happy with the Konus for the price.
