It is amusing that they now make a 6.5-20x42mmAO. It does Seem Sightron is getting caught up on the big bell market. That is not good for guys that like a 42mm front objective max. Their glass is more than up to the task.
IMO, the true value of a Leupold Vari X III is noticed in the last 15 minutes before dark while sitting in a deer stand. I can hunt longer into the dusk of evening with a V X III 3.5x10x50 than with any other scope I own.

Lots of scopes work great during bright light, but if you want to sit as long as possible waiting on a big whitetail buck to start his nightly rounds in the last few minutes of legal hunting hours, get a Vari X III w/50 mm objective. I own two of them.
