Low Light-- IOR--Nightforce--USO?

Between the Nightforce NXS 3.5X15X50, IOR 3X18X42, or the USO 3.2X17X44 which has the best low light performance?
Thanks

I have the 3.5-15x56 and love it ! Can hunt coyotes at night without a spotlight if there is half a moon or better and a little snow.

I have no experience with the other two.

Re: Low Light-- IOR--Nightforce--USO?

I had a Nightforce some years ago, and still use two IOR's. Great scopes, all. I have had opportunity to compare, side by side in low light, my IOR 2.5-10 and a Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10. For my eyes I found the Zeiss to be far brighter and that is what now goes on my rifles.

The IOR's seem like a good buy. Just curious if they or Nightforce have better low light as my next scope will be used for long range & the occassional 100 yard or less low light shot.

Check out the new IOR 3-18x42mm, 35mm tube. This one is super bright "clear". I've got it and love it. It has new coatings etc.
