Have owned the SFP version and finally let it go because of the sever color bleeding problem. Under bright sun light, everything with high contrast is surrounded by a fat rainbow. In dimmer conditions, the color is not that prominent but the image is not as sharp as it can be. I shoot targets only so all the images I have been looking at are black lines on white papers. Because of the high contrast, the problem always shows up at its worst.  The only way to alleviate the bleeding is to reduce the magnification.  My Falcon 10-50× 60 does not have the same problem despite of it's much higher magnification.   Having said that, I am very pleased with my Hawke SW 4-16X 50 which will likely stick to my AA Prosport forever.
