I'm sure it's just me but $3,000+ for a scope without thermal imaging is ridiculous.

I know but I still think it's insane. I guess they will keep raising the prices until people stop buying them.

I will say optically those scopes are some of the best out there... Its not worth it to a lot of people which i understand.

What opened my eye to the difference was elk hunting. We were in a draw and sun was going down. Someone thought they saw an elk in some trees and we thought it was going to pop out soon. Given the time we set up for a shot and on my PST i lost enough light to see reliably enough before shooting time ended. The razor there was still doing fine.

It all depends on what you are using the scope for

Smart.

You're welcome to look through mine anytime you like.

Is there better glass? Probably. Is the ATACR glass great? Sure is. Are there more reliable tracking turrets, and a tougher scope out there? Not as far as I'm comcerned.

understandably so...The issue with a lot of these scopes is they all have good features so a lot of it comes down to quality of glass and that is so flipping subjective

Some people put the kahles at a high quality in glass than NF- but the question is how much better and when does it make a difference>
There is for more of a difference between these scopes and the mid tier scopes (xtr, pst1/2, etc) than among these scopes based on what i have seen.

What i think NF has done VERY well is strike a balance of features with weight and their build quality is considered top notch
Build quality>warranty any day of the week
