Ok, Just when I think I've narrowed my scope selection down to one, another pops into the picture. I thought that I had decided on the Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16x40. But then I read a few post about the Pentax Lightseeker II. By chance, I looked up the price at SWFA and it was $484. I was expecting it to be closer the Zeiss Conquest in that magnification.

 

So, How good is it? Should I stick with the 4200? Is the Pentax more in line with Zeiss?

 

Help please!

Im biased because I am a Pentax fan.  You cant go wrong with either scope.  My two favorite scopes out there are the Zeiss Conquest and the Pentax Lightseeker.  When I looked through both the Pentax Lightseeker and the Zeiss Conquest, they were both AWSOME.

 

I like the 4200 I think it is a great scope esp for the money. All three scopes are great, it comes down to personal prefernce.

I have a Pentax Lightseeker in a 2.5-10x50 and I'm a little let down by its performance.  Not nearly as clear as my Burris Signature 4-16x44 or my Bushnell Elites.  I am probably going to trade my Lightseeker in on something different; maybe the Lightseeker II's are different.
