    out of interest - how would you compare the VX5 optics to VX6 ? quality of glass , sharpness & brightness of image, low light capability ?

    Same glass as the VX6HD, which is improved over the non-HD VX6.

    Dale has written a review here:

    Would be a good guy to ask as he repalced a VX6 with a VX5HD (as per thread).

    Yes quite right and I did the same. I canít say I notice an improvement over the non hd vx6 but the vx5/ vx6 hd glass is great, really bright down to the last minutes of shootable light. And in a weight/feature package which is ideal for mixed north Island hunting
