Entry level Burris scopes are not as bright as entry level Nikons. Leupolds are better. Leupold high end scopes are vastly superior. Mid range scopes are so similar, comparing apples to apples, if you had them side by side they would exhibit very similar light transmission. I would be happy to hunt with any of the midrange optics by those companies and not feel slighted in the least.
