 All of my friends are telling me that I need to go with the 50mm for better light gathering capabilities at dusk and dawn. Is this true? Which one would work best 40,42,44,or 50mm .

more importantly is the quality of the glass, a 50mm nikon prostaff wont be as good as a 32mm zeiss.

If you keep your power settings to 6X or lower on a 3-9 or a 2.5-10x40 Elite 4200 you will have all the light gathering (actually light transmission) you will ever need for legal hunting conditions. At least for big game anyway. This is the short answer unless you want to know why. Then it gets longer and kind of boring. Welcome to the forum.

You wouldn't want to disappoint the boys - jump on that 50 mm or one up them and go to a 56mm.   Give them something to talk about:

 Roy as usual is right on the money.  With those scopes you keep the scope profile low and your head and cheek to the rifle for a more comfortable shot instead of craning your neck with some super sized monster objective.  And pyro6999 is right, if this is not what you want and want to spend the bucks and impress the guys, go with the Kahles or Trijicon.  But the Bushnell Elite 4200s will hang with the best of them for a long time.
