[ol][*]Zeiss Conquest 3-9x 40 or 3.5-10x44[*]Leupold 3.5-10x40[/ol]
The Bushnell is going to be a lot heavier then either these 2..If it doesn't both you the 2.5-16x42 would be ok and I am sure it is at least a little better then the 4200's in optical quality. It hasn't been out as long as choice 1 or 2.

I've heard about some "issues" with the early production run of the new Elite 6500's. I would also (like oldelk) lean towards the Zeiss but, in all honesty, the Leuppy would be fine also.
