Better optics that either of the aforementioned.

I've only owned the SWFA SS 3-9 but I can tell you the glass on it had nothing on my NF. Perhaps the 5-20's are better?

That certainly wasn't my experience.

If cost is an issue, I'd take a used good-condition NF over the Mark 4s or SWFAs.

Re: Nightforce vs Leupold

nightforce,

they have the most consistent scope on the market, vs leupold, which has an older erector system and lens coatings, and as for the swfa, while it might be a good deal, between chinese construction and glass vs japanese construction and glass, the Japanese always wins

Re: Nightforce vs Leupold

i guess ill have to go way out on a limb alone and say nightforce. comparing a leupold mk4 to a nightforce is like comparing a ferrari to a ford escort. (ok thats a exageration but you get the point)
