In a late afternoon hunt is a bushnelll 4200 2.5-10 w/ 50mm going to be any noticable difference than the 40mm,since the tube size is the same?

In late afternoon, probably not. 

 

More light will enter your eye only on the higher magnifications with the larger objective lens scopes, which is more noticeable at Dusk, and dawn.

What David said.

 

Also, tube size does not make any difference for light transmission.
