anyone compared the glass directly against the older ones in low light?

can you get the ill down very, very low so it's not overpowering

This is one area where you can definately see the difference between the vx3 and the past model, the new coatings/glass excel in low light conditions.

That's funny Sam. I sat down at the computer with a bowl of popcorn, and opened this thread. About fell out of my chair after seeing that.

I have both VX-III and VX-3 3.5-10x50s and personally can't tell any difference. While good bright scopes neither are as good in low light as a 50mm Bushnell 4200, Weaver Classic Extreme or 40mm Trijicon and only slightly better than my Simmons MS AETEC 2.5-10x44. I've always been a big Leupold fan, but you gotta call em as you see em..................

I grew up on Leupolds, you didn't have a "real" scope unless it had the gold ring on it :)

Haven't bought one in years because I think there are better scopes for similar or less money
in fact, recently my dad wanted to replace his 20 year old 2-7 Leupold on his Sako 22-250 and I recommended a 2.5-10x42 Nikon Monarch, he loves it
My brother commented on it and was shocked my dad would buy anything but a Leupold....

I was just curious on the new VX3 1.5-5 with ill reticle
