since the elite 6500's are NEW, i would opt for the IOR out of those two.
I like for other people to test-drive things before i go and buy them.
 
i have heard good things about the 6500's, and the 4200's were great, no doubt.
so the optical quality is strong, i am sure.
 
what are you putting it on?

I can't say for sure about the 6500 glass, but the IOR glass is noticeably better than the 4200 glass as I have several IORs and a bushnell 4200 and it is not quite in the same league. 
Check out Meopta as well.  I have one an Artemas 3000 3-9x42 and it is not quite as good as the IORs but it is also better than the 4200.
