Kowa/ Pentax/ Vixen
Also I'm wondering whether you have all of these scopes in your show room and whether you have a good way for me to assess/ test the various scopes I'm considering? I may just take a drive to your business from central Illinois.

The Kowa 661 with the new Z9B scored higher for me in my tests than either the Pentax or the Geoma. All are good scopes, but I prefer the Kowa. Part of my preference for the Kowa stems from the eyepiece. The Pentax 65ED must be used with the 70503 zoom, http://www.opticsplanet.com/pentax-xf-z ... piece.html and the eye relief on this zoom is rather minimal at 11-15mm. I much prefer the Kowa zoom.
