    i would check with cameraland, a sponsor here. they allways have some discontinued or dealer samples at about half price. Call there and ask for doug and ask him what hed recomend in your price range. Youll find alot of predudice here. Guys that buy a certian model or brand and think because they bought it and there so smart it has to be the best and everything else is junk. Also dont let anyone fool you into thinking you cant find a great pair of binoculars that 95 percent as good as glass costing 3 or 4 times that much in your 500 dollar price range if you shop smart.

    Cameraland NY is good advice. Zeiss has changed the conquest line of scopes and the old models have been discounted pretty heavily. I bought a 4.5-15x50 with target turrets a few months back for $499. I've seen the 6.5-20 for that price or $599, can't remember which.

    Edit:

    The 6.5-20's are $599, here's the link:
