Should I go ahead and drop $1,000 for the Leupold or wait and save up another $2k and get the swarovski.
My wife has the NON "HD" version of the leupold and it alone would do all you want. I have a 65mm Pentax that covers me. But between Leupold; Kowa and Swaroski , one of their scope would do you fine. Spend the amount that you can AFFORD and dont look back. All 3 brands will last you your life regardless.
(Bought the Leo for the wife back in 1987...has worked superb ever since)
