Specifically, an Elite 4-16x-40 mm and a Lightseeker XL 4-16x-44mm.
 
Can anyone confirm that both of these are still manufactured in Japan ?
 
Second, which 1 of the above has the better glass for clarity/resolution ?
 
Thanks !

Question 1:
 
Bushnell Elite = Japan
Pentax Lightseeker XL is a tough one, last time I read about them they were produced by Burris and equal to Burris top models Signature Select /Diamond = Made in US (with Pentax glass ?)
 
Question 2:
 
I have never compared the two.

Thanks for the reply ! I found out that Burris still assembles the Pentax Lightseeker series in Greeley, CO. (Pentax rep told me this today) Kinda strange because Burris no longer makes or sells the Black Diamond (Lightseeker 30) or the Signature Select (Lightseeker XL). Burris told me they only assemble the XTR series at the Greeley plant. I'm still researchin'.
