I'VE NEVER BEEN A LEUPOLD MAN UNTIL I TRIED A MARK 4 AND I CAN TELL YOU IT IS A VERY FINE RIFLESCOPE. THE INDEXED LENS MATCHING I THINK HAS HELPED WITH THEIR LIGHT TRANSMISSION. YOU DIDN'T GO WRONG.

My advice - try one before buying - Leupies make my eyes ache.

This looks like it could be heading for another Leupold/S&B slanging match again, we all know certain posters wont entertain the idea of anything else then a S&B, but other opinions must also be respscted, so lets not go there.

Re: What about this scope?

There is much more than image clarity and contrast to consider when choosing a scope. Whether that scope can maintain zero, and last for years--and quality of customer service are also important.

A scope is an aiming device--not something with which we "glass the field." While image quality is important, among the higher priced scopes available today there is little if any difference in resolution, and image quality comes down to a personal matter. Even the "lowly" Burris Fullfield in that Swedish hunting mag test scored a 10 out of 10 for image resolution. It faired poorly on color--but again, we're hopefully not using our scopes to spot game, but rather only to aim our rifles at it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
