Default VX-2 vs VX-3??

Is there $200 worth of difference between the Leupold VX-2 and the VX-3
Just got to hear from people that have shot with them both to see.

No there isn't. The New VX-2 is amazing.....the VX-II less so....

What is this selling point of the VX-3 then? I am missing something.

The VX-2 is lighter and just as bright. The VX- 3 has the Xtended Twilight Lens System and The DiamondCoat 2 for what that is worth.

Better glass and a bit more engineering. Some of the newer VX-3 scopes have a little less eye relief which is a mistake IMHO. Are they worth more? Only each individual can decide that.

If you were asking about the old varix II compared to the old vari X III id say yes no doubt. The newer vx2 is a much improved scope. Is the vx3 better. No doubt but the IIs are plenty good enough for any deer hunting situation and much cheaper. The vx2s i have are everybit as good opticaly as a nikon monarch or ziess conquest.

And quite a bit lighter in weight. That's something I look for.

These are some of the things I wanted to know. I plan on replacing my Nikon Monarch SF with a leupold just trying to make up my mind which.

If you are hunting deer the vx2 is more than adequate. It is a very good scope and I don't think it's worth spending the $100 plus for the vx3. I myself like the Monarch but that's just a personal choice.

When I get home from in December the Monarch will be for sale. I think the VX-3 3.5-10x40 is what I am looking at replacing it with.
