I have a VX-III 2-10x50 Illuminated reticle.Optics are good but for the money the 2-10x50 illuminated Weaver Classic Extreme is cheaper half off and is also a 30mm tube with side focus for $300.I like the Weaver over the Leupold.My opinion is that the glass is better on the Weaver.Cons with Leupold it has a high price, features no side focus the illuminated reticle is too bright even on the lowest setting.

I have a VX-III 1.5-5x20 with an illuminated duplex.  It sits on a CZ550 full stock 30-06.

I like the scope and it has served me well in killing several deer.  There are times when the light gathering early or late in the day is not as good as the massive optics my brother carries, but I have not had to pass up a legal light shot.

I have shot all my deer from 25-150 yards.  I stalk and still hunt in the pacific northwest.  Probably half the deer were shot with the illumination on.

I have not had a problem with too much illumination at the lowest setting unless it is DARK out.  If it is, you can see some internal scattering in the scope.

I like the fact that it is a nice duplex reticle when the illumination is off.  I am confident that the reticle/scope/rifle would allow me to shoot better groups at the bench than I am able to produce.

I like 'em and Leupold has really improved their III series this year with the new vx-3. It does has a fast focus eye piece in the rear and side parallax adjustment for the higher power scopes. Not sure which one your looking at?

You've been checking out quite a few different brands lately. Wink  Thunbs Up

I like my Mark 4 Illuminated reticle (mil dot) you can control the brightness for different low light conditions.
Tip~ if you buy one, REMOVE the battery if your storing long term.

I have one and I like an illuminated scope but I dont like that the illumination dial doesnt stop at 0 it just turns and turns.  The battery is a little hard to find - same one as a lot of the aimpoints, better than the coin looking batteries at surviving the cold though.
