Leupold Golden Ring 12-40x60 HD ???

I hunt in South Texas and sometimes in New Mexico and Colorado.

I am considering the Leupold 12-40x60 in either the original or HD versions?

I have read good things about the Vortex Razor HD but what draws me to the Leupold is the 30mm eye relief and solid reputation of Leupold.

I do NOT plan to hook it up to a camera or looks for bullet holes @ 600 yards.

I just want a solid Spotting Scope for Hunting and judging trophies.

Got any other suggestions?

Is the HD worth the extra $200?

Thanks!

    I talked to Leupold today and 2 guys told me that the original Gold Ring 12-40x40 spotting scope would fill my needs for hunting and that the HD only enhances colors.

    I posted the question yesterday and although I have 26 viewers nobody responsed.

    Has anyone used both?

    Thanks!

    I have owned the HD, its an awesome scope and if you wear glasses IMO its pretty much the only scope you should consider. I downsized to the 15-30 model not sure how much I am going to like it, but I am having a feeling I am going to miss the 12-40 model. another scope to check out is leupolds ventana.
