I have an Ares BTR 2.5-15x50, which supposedly has very similar (if not the same) glass as the Midas Tac series. I'm really impressed with the optic, and the Midas should suit your needs well. I think Athlon has really done a fantastic job at designing optics tailored to mainstream price points with great features (great glass, excellent reticles, and reliable turrets). It compares nicely to my SWFA SS 3-15x42 (excellent tracking, but dated reticle) and Leupold VX-R Patrol 3-9x40 (annoyingly thick reticle, but excellent FireDot illumination). For what it's worth, the SWFA is on my 6.5 Grendel AR, the VX-R Patrol is on my 5.56 Mock12, and the Ares BTR is on my 6.5 Creedmoor Aero M5. I have a lot of confidence in the capabilities of the Athlon scopes, and hope to try an ETR or Cronus at some point.
