Leica Zooms

Has anybody had any experience with the 20X to 60X spotting scope Leica Zoom eyepieces in a bino? I have heard mixed reviews about this eyepiece. But these look very interesting, especially when being used in the 10 to 14mm range, good eye relief and a nice generous FOV {see below from advertisement literature}. If these Zooms are good, how good are they in faster scopes say f7 and lower?


The zoom at a 20x barrel marking is a 22mm focal length eyepiece with a 38 degree apparent field and 20mm of usable eye relief.
At a 30x barrel marking, it is a 14.6mm focal length eyepiece with a 51 degree apparent field and 13mm of usable eye relief.
At a 40x barrel marking, it is an 11mm focal length eyepiece with a 59 degree apparent field and 11mm of usable eye relief.
At a 60x barrel marking, it is a 7.3mm focal length eyepiece with a 66 degree apparent field and 11mm of usable eye relief
