cameralandny has some good deals on demo units pretty often. Highly recommend picking something up from them.
I agonized over what to get and ended up with the Swarovski so I'm probably not the best person to give you advice on this but for reference, I've used a buddies redfield which was decent but nowhere near the swaro. Also looked through the vortex's which were great for the $ but the razor HD is the only one that was close to the swaro.
Really depends on if you're trying to determine that "there are deer over there and that one looks like a buck" or if you want to tell that "there are 6 deer over there, 4 does, 2 bucks, one is a spike, and the other has 6 points on the left, 5 on the right, and a tick crawling on his face".
Let us know what you get though!
