Look at Nikon and Pentax. Go to a store that will let you take the scopes outside, and look through them. What looks good to one person, may not look good to the next. Optics are personal in my opinion.

leupold goldring 12-40x60 works great. They are lightweight and packable. and the optical quality is very good. I have used them both side by side, and i can't justify upgrading to the swaro.....

Take a look at the Kowa 82mm. Do not go with a variable eyepiece. Get a 22WA and a 32 WA.

I have also used the Leupold for many years with satisfaction

Another vote for the Leupold 12x40 HD. Love this scope. It's not too too heavy, but sometimes wish it were a few ounces lighter. Would hate to give up the quality though.
