I have Minox AZ3 and the optics are very clear and bright. With the BDC reticule the cross hair is a little smaller that some but needed for distance shooting. The optics show animals and trees in the dawn before I can even see crosshair. The adjustment caps feel "different" and that is the only questionable part that I have with my scope. I have only used it this deer season so others who have the Minox scopes can give better experience regarding durability. Optics are great. Power selector is smooth and short twist making it very easy to change power settings.

I have the ZA3 Minox and love it. I got mine as an open box demo from CameralandNy for $189 a couple yrs ago. I have since bought another, although not for that price. I have no problems with their open box demo stuff since it comes with full warranty.

Santa just brought me a new Conquest 3-9x for my "new" 7mm08 Remmy 700 Buckmaster I bought off of Classified here. Very very bright, even with these old eyes.

I love my Burris Fullfield II 4.5-14x42. I think you can get them for around $300.
