It depends what you will be using the Fusions for Terry. I'm working on a quick video explaining the differences. I'll give you a preview here of what I say in the video...

The bigger objective is going to allow more light in but it’s going to give you slightly less eye relief compared to the 42mm.

10x magnification will enlarge your field of view by approximately 50 yards compared to the 12x50 model at a distance of 1000 yards. The 12x50 will also make it a little easier to laze smaller targets as a result of the increased magnification. Those who are into varminting that are considering the Fusions, might want consider the 12x over the 10x because of these benefits.

Last but not least, there’s only about a 1 oz difference in weight, with the 12x50 obviously being the slightly heavier unit. "
Thanks,

Mason @ CST

I would expect the 12X50 to have a smaller field of view than the 10X42 ? I have had the 10X42 for about 8 months and really like them.

Re: New Bushnell 1600 ARC Review

I was hunting groundhogs with Harry Swarez and he uses a Leica and we were comparing them, 1530 yards on a grassy hillside is about as far as we could get with both failing sometimes and working sometimes. I've a sneeky suspision that they are the same guts in different packages. Harry missed the ground hog that we ranged there but, holding more than 10 feet of wind, he hit close enough to put the hog down the hole! I can't shoot that far due to not enough elevation adjustment but will address that after my bear hunt! Will test Bushnell Fusion in Montana next week.
