Looking to purchase new riflescope and have been trying to decide between the Nikon
Prostaff 3-9 X 50 or the Vortex Diamondback 3.5-10 x 50. Narrowed it down to these two basically
for price and review ratings. If Anyone has any input or even another option its much appreciaated.
$200-$300 price range. Thanks!

FWIW:
Ilya's review was done before the new Nikon Prostaff models came out. The new models appear to be much improved (turrets instead of coin adjust, new coatings and made in the Philippines), and better competition for the Diamondback.

I'll go with the vortex do the superior C/S. Nikon's track record with warranty work is less then stellar.

Looked through a new Prostaff the other day and thought it looked very good.
