I have been looking a getting a new spotter in the 1000-1500 dollar range and have pretty much narrowed my search down to these two scope. Now I am having a hard time deciding between the two. I am currently stationed in England, so being able to do a side by side comparison has been impossible. If anyone has any firsthand knowledge of these scopes I would appreciate your input. Also any input on other scopes in this price range that I may have over looked.

Thanks for your input.
