Sounds like a Vortex razor 65 HD might be in your future. I will be checking this model out soon (I hope). I have used the 85HD a lot, and it compares to the best in many ways.
Initial reports on the 65mm are quite positive. Time will tell.
If you don't mind hauling 4 pounds around, the Meopta S2 spotter is absolutely top shelf in every way (except for the eyepiece cover), but will still cost you $2K.
Deals can be found on the ATM/ATS 65HD, which would also be a great choice.
