Choices! Choices ! Please help.
My choices are narrowed to Bushnell Elite 20-60x80, Kowa TSN 661 20-60X66 non ED and Olivon T64ED 16-48X64. i am favouring the latter based on price mainly . Its $650 .The others are around $1000
What will i be missing if i dont buy the Bushnell Elite or the Kowa which both seem quite good ?

Also, are you sure you want something that big and heavy? If you are going to be doing a lot of hiking through the hinterlands, you might re-think the size issue. A really good 65mm will do most jobs quite well. Obviously, if you will be observing from a static position, then your only concern will be whether or not the tripod you get will be heavy enough (and you will need a very heavy tripod for the Bushnell).
You should also look at the Nikon 50mm ED scope. Very small and lightweight, but with incredibly sharp and bright optics. Hunters in the US love them because they are easily transported over the rough terrain in the American west.
