I've been reading that in europe, hunters cannot use night vision/thermal scopes, but rather use big fixed power (brighter because they have fewer lenses to diffuse light) scopes - most commonly the 8x56 - to hunt fox or boar from a stand at night. So it got me to wondering how bright these things really are. Has anyone ever compared any of the various brands like the Meopta R2, the S&B klassik, the Swaro, or other similar ones in 8x56? not the variable scopes in those brands, but specifically the "nighttime" 8x56's. If so, what were your impressions. I already have fixed zeiss, meopta, and leupolds in 6x and would not consider any of them to be "wow" bright, although the old zeiss was pretty good and the meopro is okay.
