Objective lenses?

Is it worth it to go with a 40mm Objective lense or a 50mm? does it realy matter?

    Why not buy both and a 56 mm also. I have them all including 32mm and 20 mm. Smaller ones for daytime, lightweight use and bigger ones for dusk/dawn and bad weather. They all fill their special purposes exactly like to have many calibers depending on what you hunt.
    This of course if you donīt use a 375 H&H, then you need only two scopes.

    In the first 15 minutes of daylight, and again in the last few minutes of dusk, larger objectives are an advantage, because they gather more light. For 90% of your hunting, a smaller objective will be fine.
