I'm back in the market for a new scope.Yippee  This time I am looking at:
Kahles KX 4X12X50
Kahles CL 4X12X52
 
I have been reading about the poor CS with Legacy and I am not too worried about that.
My question is which of these two is better for low light conditions.
Which is the one with superior optics quality.
BTW it will be mounted on a 257 Weatherby Ultralightweight.
Thanks to all.
Why must everything I like be so expensive?

The Cl models have an AO on the side and etched reticles if I'm correct.  I have 3 CLs and find them to be a great value for the price when looking at the Sample List prices.

The Cl is a better scope period and those are pretty strong words, because the kx is no slouch.

CL has a tad better resolution, but I don't think you'd notice any difference in low light performance whatsoever.
