    On the nightvision model, the screen is backlit in red instead of the usual bright green.

    You can get by just fine with the 2500 if you don't want the humidity function but even though humidity is really a non-issue I think you'll find that most of the guys around here go with the 3500 or higher. I've always used the 3500 and have never needed anything more. You can see the features of the different models here.

    sweet didnt think there was much of a difference i thought humidity was one of the key readings you needed for balistic software
