Re: 1" tube or 30MM
My first scope was a NF 3.5x12x50 30mm tube. I traded that for a Swarovski 1". The only difference I noticed was in the clarity at distance...the Swarovski far surpassed the NF, but that was ten years ago.
I currenly use a S&B 4x16x50 with a 34mm tube, in the open desert.
Bottom line go for the 30mm or bigger tube....its definately worth it.
