I would use the Nikon.  It, to me, is clearer than the Leupold VX3- which I have owned. 
I use only 50mm objectives, simply because I like the light transmission.  However, in my opinion, the 56 is too big.
Scopes are personal.  Grab a couple and look through them side by side.  You may be surprised at what you see.  Good Luck!!

I think you should add the Swift 8-32x50 Premier.  It is an outstanding value.  To me, it is cleaner than the Nikon... I've not looked at the others in your list in the power range of interest.

Doesn't the Nikon Monarch 8-32x50 have ED glass or am I thinking of a different model?

The Nikon does have ED glass.  I really like ED glass.  However, it costs over $400 more, and what ED glass provides over the much better than average glass in the Swift is not worth the differential for the type of shooting described, my opinion, about 10% or less, in certain situations.  The mechanicals in the Swift are outstanding.  Price vs utility the Swift will always win, for me.  Anyone is free to disagree, this is my experiential opinion...
