Default Anyone looked through a Bushnell elite tactical?

I have been thinking about buying a Bushnell 6-24x50 Elite Tactical 30mm. Currently I am using a Leupold mk 4 and the clarity is great. However, i have been using a 3.5-10 power model and i need some more magnification plus a ffp reticle. If anyone out there has had a chance to look at a bushnell elite tactical was the quality of glass similar to that of a mk4. also if you have seen one what store did you see it at so that i might be able to take a look at it.

I have an Elite Tactical 2.5-16x42. I can't make the comparison with the MK4 because I haven't look though one yet. I think clarity is one of the ET's strong attributes. I'm sure others will agree with that.

I have this exact scope - and yes, the glass is very clear.

I don't have and haven't used the MK4, so I can't compare - but I'm overly anal about research prior to purchasing (just about anything) and the Elite Tactical gets very good reviews...

The only other scope I have in Burris E1 (also very good) and a bunch of RDS)... the Bushnell is as good or better than the other optics I use.

OP, as you are probably aware, Bushnell currently has a $75 rebate for Elite scopes purchased through Dec 31, 2012 - so when comparing pricing (to other scope considerations), keep that in mind...

I found Grabagun to have the best pricing (when I bought mine a few weeks ago)

Bushnell has some very clear glass. I just bought a 6-24x50mm G2DMR and compared to my old Vortex Viper (not a PST) it blows it away. The eye relief is amazing. I'm very happy with my Bushnell.
