Humm depends on what I can get the best deal on. I have seen referbished elites at about 40% off in the past. Do you wear glasses? The Bushnell Elites have more eye relief at 17mm compared to the Minox at 15mm may not be much but something to consider. Personally, I'd lean more to Minox has a slightly bigger field of view (again not much but a little) comes from a company with a solid reputation of mid high end optics. Not that Bushnell's Elite series scopes or bino's are bad infact quite good but at that price I want a name as well.
In that price range for myself I would look at Kahles. They are a bit heavier then the other two, has about the same eye relief as the Minox has the same fov as the Elite and has a great solid reputation as a very good binocular under $1000. Plus they tend to hold their value in case you want to sell later and up grade.
Another to consider is the Meopta, when I looked through it I thought it was a pretty nice binocular a bit heavy in weight but very good glass.
