Neither an option?  I'll pick that.  Whats your budget and intended usage?

I've looked through the VX-6 1-6 and really like it. I haven't seen the 2-12 or the Bushnell 6500s to view side by side.

If they were my only two choices I'd go with the VX-6.  Based on the reviews from the OT.

Keep the one you like better.  Take both out in low light and look at the image and compare then choose.

I am pretty impressed with the VX6
I have the 1-6 and 2-12
In the next few days I will be doing a low light test between the 2-12 and a Z3 3-10x42
Anxious to see how they compare

I'm a hunter, so just the Rainguard alone would most likely be the deal breaker for me. The 6500 has been out in the field alot longer than the VX6 also.

One thing working against the vx6 2x12 is the lack of any parallax adjustment

Any updates on the VX6.  I thought for sure I would see more reviews on this model.  Mine is still new in the box in my safe.  

Posts like this make me wonder if I should send it back and get a duralyte or z3
