Hello
         I read a couple old post about how nice the Steiner M5xi 1-5 was.   I am looking for a comparison between M5xi to the Kahles K16i and the SB PM Short Dot from someone who has actual first hand experience. 
   Scenarios: 1) CQB distances and  circumstances concerning true 1X both eyes open picture.
                     2) low light optic clarity
                     3) mid distance engagements  and being able to see the target with a darker environment behind it.
                       4) I still want that bright Red Dot with high quality glass. Is there much difference?
                      5)  Are they all pretty close in terms of clarity, red dot brightness and day light bright
glass?
                       6) Battery life using the Red Dot at "normal conditions". 
      Not looking to compromise.
thanks in advance.

Pick the one with the reticle you like the most. Ask are excellent designs.

Personally, I prefer Kahles reticle selection (SM1) and lighter weight.
