Not long ago, one of our NCOs spent two days trying to track down national standards for optical glass so we could evaluate scope lenses. He learned there were no hard data standards for comparing lenses.
I tried to find some kind of comparative assessment of scopes, kind of a Consumer Reports, but no such comparison exists. While I could do an assessment myself, it wouldn't be a detached and scientific study without thousands of dollars worth of equipment, much beyond my already overstressed Visa card.
Therefore, instead of providing answers, I'll give you the questions to ask and factors to take into account when selecting a scope.

Deer hunting is an interesting thing that reminds you of those golden old ages of 19th centuries, where a handsome hunk well equipped with all hunting material rides on horse searching for his target animal either for the purpose of displaying his masculine powers or for enticing and wooing his lady love.
