The new 3-9x40 elites are going for $250.00. Are the new optical coatings that much better than the previous model or am I better off buying the discontinued 4200 models around $200.00?

That is a good question because the 4200 3-9x40 used to be $300 and now the replacement Elite 3-9x40 is only $250.  You're wasting your time looking for information at Bushnell.com because they currently have zero information about the new Elite line on their website.  It seems like their marketing department is asleep at the wheel.

I was looking at the new Elite line and I have a related question -

Why does this scope

cost $50 less than this scope:

By adding a side focus the price goes down $50?  I am a little confused by this.

I don't believe that the one you are referencing above actually made it to the new Elite line. The scope that cost $50 less was made in China and I believe it was dropped from the new Elite line.

I read that the new Bushnell elites with side focus are made in china while the other new elites are still made in japan in the same factory as the 4200 . I suppose that is why there is a price difference between the two in the same line. I see no need for a side focus on a 3-9x40 and prefer it made in japan.
