I could have sworn I have read someone report the FFP version of the Mark 4 had better glass than the SFP.

This evening I got to test back to back
Both scopes are brand new Mark 4, 4.5-14x50 TMR

I tested both viewing back to back at 250 yards views into the dark.  I could discern no difference whatsoever and I am pretty well versed at testing scopes in little to no light as I do a lot of hog hunting and have tested a bunch of scopes over the years.

I would say that I would prefer the FFP for daylight uses but the thin TMR reticle (both were set to 11 power) get's lost fast.  The illuminated TMR is done well and at it's lowest setting there is no flare whatsoever and is totally usable, as such, if I was going to use for hunting as well, I would probably opt for the illuminated TMR / SFP version.

I haven't tested against an older Leupold Mark 4 yet and will do so this weekend against a few of them.

I got it from Leupold that the M4s have the "extended twilight" lens coating upgrades in the last year.
