Scrape up another $50 and look at a conquest or watch the sample list.

I'd look at the Bushnell 4200 Elite 3-9x40.  Excellent low light performance for the price.

I had the same question a year ago and after the input I received from this forum, I sold my Leupold VXIII 2.5-8x36 and bought a used Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 with the German no. 4 reticle. The Conquest has just enough low light performance for my type of hunting. I spend a lot of time still hunting in the softwood thickets and swamps early and late in the day and was very disappointed in the VXIII. Since I hunt mainly on my feet I would prefer a lighter scope, but with the Conquest you can see pretty well in low light. If you watch the auctions and are patient you may be able to pick up a Conquest for your price or around $50 more. I personally would like to try the Minox with the no. 4 reticle, but it is just above your price point also.

The 1.5-6x40 Euro Diamond I just got is great for low light. Burris got it right with their rendition of the 4A. The glass is very good also.

+1 for the bushnell elite 4200

lots of guys over on predator masters forum have them and hunt at night with them. i use my leupold vx2 for nighttime use (with a light) and have no issues under low light conditions. but thats my eyesight and its different from yours so once again id go with general consensus.

my next scope, a bushnell elite is in the mix against a vx3 and a minox za3/5. 

i really really like the vx3 over the conquest for weight and function. a new vx3 is only $50 more.
