    Lt.., Out of your options I would go for the Dialyte for the optical performance; however, I'm not a fan of the design. It is supposed to be a sheep hunters scope thus the design. I would say no to the 50mm Razor, I don't like the edge quality. Edge is better on the 65mm Razor and that is a good option, however I would compare it side by side to the Viper. I have said this in the past but with Vortex it is a scope by scope comparison that you need to make and not a model to model comparison, so I would check out both your take home options and then make the choice if you decide to go with a Vortex.

    When it come to he high end optics I like the Leica 65mm best.

    Why do u say compare vortex scopes side by side rather than model to model? Have you seen consistency issues?

    I purchased a Swarovski ATS 80 angled view 20-60 about 5 years ago.
    One of the best purchases I ever made.
    IMO, it is the best in low light conditions.

    I will say that it gets a little heavy especially with a good tripod.

    And yes I did get the Cabelas points

    Not sure if anyone mentioned the Zen Ray spotter?

    I believe it's right up there in that crowd for price and quality...


    I already have a nice spotter, but if I ever wanted to step it up I believe that's the one I'd probably get at the moment.
