I'm looking to pick up another Bushnell Elite and was wondering if there's a quality difference between the scopes with side focus and the eye-piece focus.  I thought I'd heard the side-focus scopes were of a little lesser quality, but I can't remember for sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am not aware of any rear-focus Elites at all. All of them have a rear diopter adjustment that is used to focus the reticle, but the focus used to eliminate parallax error is either on the side of the turret housing, or an adjustable objective.

There was a side-focus 3-9 model (I believe) that was reportedly a little lower quality than the other 3-9 models, but that is the only lower quality Elites I have heard of, and I think that one is discontinued.

The 3-9x40 models with side focus are made in CHINA which is why they are cheaper. All other Elite models are still made in JAPAN like the always have been.
