Dose any one have these scopes? Which one has the clearest glass? I hear the new PST has better glass then the Black diamond. Dose anyone have an opnion? I already have a 4X16X50 Black diamond with target knobs, but am thinking of selling it to get a Vortex PST, I realy like the Zero stop that Vortex offers and the knobs are easer to use, but is the glass better or what? The price is close to the same. Are these Viper's in the same class as the Black diamond? Thanks bshooter..

That's the problem, nobody has a PST yet so we can't tell you exactly how the glass compares with other scopes.  In a couple months when they start shipping, I'm sure you'll see tons of reviews everywhere.

Anyway, to answer your question, for me personally I would choose the PST.  In fact, I have two on order.  Assuming they turn out to be mechanically sound and the glass is decent, compared with the Black diamond you have a much better reticle, better matching knobs, zero stop, FFP (available) and illumination.  No contest.

Only a few people have seen the PSTs - mostly at the SHOT show. They sound like really good scopes and Vortex has demonstrated their commitment to customer service over and over again. So they will probably be well worth the price and the wait. Mil/mil, FFP, illumination and zero-stop in a 4-16 for under a grand is impressive. If they track well and have decent glass there won't be much else worth considering under $2K.

Thanks for the reply guys, I thought these scopes were already out! a number of sights are advertising them and no signs of a back order. It must be an over sight on my part. Yes they look like they have all the goodies we want. I hope the glass will be as good as I have heardYippee. Tracking is key!! This function is the most important. Well if one of you guys get your hands on one let us know what you think. Thanks bshooter..
