Nikon Prostaff. Ive had it on my .375 H&H and it worked fine, Ive had it on .300 win mags and .325WSM's and its held up fine. Dropped it and all the internals were fine. Id say investing $150 in a prostaff would be a good idea.

It would be interesting to see the results with all manufactures labels hidden or removed. I think even the testers can/are brand biased.

Just can't bring myself to try a nikon after all the trash they made several years back. Maybe they've improved significantly, but the stuff they made back in the 90's was junk. Kinda surprising too, since they had some of the best camera lenses out for decades.

As far as light gathering ability's go.......Zeiss bar none.


Maybe, I wasn't referring to Ziess.

After looking at the rankings, they are probably in order of highest profit.

I agree 100% - anyone that has ever put the 3200 up against the Leupold VX-I (much less the VX-II) can only come to one conclusion - they'll put the 3200 back down and purchase the VX-1.
