anyone compared these 2 ? ive read a couple forums where it was said the R2 is noticeably better than the R1. but didnt really give a reason why. i can get an R1 3-10x50 for around $650. or spend double and get the R2 (with illumination). i do have an illuminated meostar and while the dot is nice im not sure its a total necessity for the hunting i do is why im just considering going with the R1 3-10 with #4.   but if glass is noticeably better in the R2 i dont mind spending a little more

You would think all the Meostars would share the same glass, and the extra $'s are in the illumination and the 6x magnification system. The 2.5-15x56 would be a nice bit of gear with a good magnification range for short and mid range shooting

Having seen several R1s, I have a hard time believe they are noticeably better.   But I have not seen the R2 so I cannot say with any certainty.  

The ill on the R2s is supposed to be excellent and the 6x mag range I know adds a lot of the cost to build.

I know the R2 has a little different lens coating package than the R1.  The R2 line coatings are supposed to be a little better in low light than the R1 coatings, and the R2 line has a hydrophobic coating that is absent with the R1.  I don't know how perceptible the differences are to the user.  When coupled with the 6x zoom ratio, the R2 is a pretty attractive package.
