I have a VX 3 6x42 fixed power. I haven't mounted it on anything yet but I will let you know how it compares to some of my other scopes. Initial impressions are pretty good though.

I don't have the Burris but do have the others. To my eyes, they are about equal.

IMHO the new VX-3 is pretty good, the one 3x9 Leupold VX-3 I compared to a 3x9 Zeiss Conquest was slightly better, especially when I looked into the shadows and at dusk.
Several guys I hang out with say the VX-3's are a big improvement over the VX-III and are close to some of the European scopes.
Illiya has had a chance to test and compare some of the new VX-3's, check with him when he returns from the SHOT Show.
Make sure you at least look through and compare one.
Good luck.
Thanks

I put the VX-3s right there next to conquest.
 
I bet Gremcat's 6X42 is a FX-3 though, Wink.

This is true, never saw a V fixed anything.
