Hmm... toughy. I had the first one on the circuit, and you won't prise it off me. But it's not a wonder machine... it still needs working and knowing where it shifts.
Optically wise it's superb in tough conditions where it really pays. But then is it worth 7 x £300 debens? Hmm.
I prefer many of the characteristics of the 10-60 (weight, price and scope tube size) to the 80...
I don't think there's a straight answer. If you can say something specific about the range finding issues you are having now, and what your current performance and expectations are it might help to narrow the grey areas down a bit.
