As the title says I'm after a lightweight scope, mainly for woodland stalking but will on the odd trip be out on the hills out to 300yards. I have a S&B 2.5-10x56 and am very happy with it but was looking at at 42-44mm lenses to keep the weight down. Not too bothered if it's illuminated or not.
my eye has been caught by the Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x42 compact but have no experience of these. My other thought was a fixed focus 6x42.
any help gratefully recieved.
