when you are ready to get a leupold and wish to sell the Nikko , you will get a better price on the MK111 as well . 350 ish on the MK1 to 450 ish on the MK111 . luck HOLLY
There was never any question in my mind about whether the Nikko was better than the T50 Holly.
But at the time there were no Nikkos available, of the right quality, at the right price. So the fully kitted out T50 was a good buy at half the price of a new Nikko and possibly 75% of the quality. For me, as a newbie, that was a reasonable proposition. It has done me very well.

I must admit that neither of the two Nikko's have sunshades. I'll keep my eyes open for them
