What criteria are we to meet? I'm referring to stuff like type of hunting to be performed, typical terrain and distances, personal preferences such as size, weight, FFP or SFP, budget... etc.

That is a fine recommendation.  Also, 7mmfan, welcome to the forum.  Other than myself, everyone who has posted to your thread has MUCH to offer in the way of optics knowledge.  You have come to the right place.

Leupy FX3 6x42.  One of the brightest hunting scopes in it's class, and most durable.  Get it in a heavy duplex and you're set.

Even over the Swaro Koshkin recommended, JG?

FX-3 is a good scope and if his budget was around $400 it would easily be one of the best options.

For $800, however, I would go the other way, personally.
