Based on clarity at night, please rank the list of scopes. I love my Zeiss Classic binoculars and the Nightforce scopes I have viewed at night were great. Please let me know how you would rank the other brands against these. I am looking at 30mm tubes ONLY. Not interested in a 1" tube.

Thanks!

I don't have a lot of hands on with with the others, but the S&B and Kahles are both SUPERB in terms of clarity, day or night.

S&B

I have both S&B and NightForce optics and I much prefer the S&B.

my only experience with the Kahles where their old 6x fixed's - left me very unimpressed...

i would rate S&B one followed closly with US optics, the rest really are not even close to these two,

its hard to compare a 2000-3000 dollar scope to a 1000-1500 dollar scope, best way i would put it is a great scope vs an Incredible scope

Decide if the extra dollars is worth the slight gain you will achieve by buying the top end scope like S&B, and if the difference will be that much more noticeable or usable for your purpose. That's what I did and the Nightforce was the best value and scope.
