I've turned down quite a few 30mm scopes that looked great until I saw the weight.

I will have to agree with SSA on the 50 mm objective argument
There is no argument. JMR40 posted the facts. The math doesn't lie. Outside the parameters he outlined, if a 50mm seems brighter, it's either due to a difference in coatings, optical quality or wishful thinking. Not the objective diameter. The idea that huge objective scopes are universally brighter is myth that goes along with the nonsense about light gathering.
