Schmidt and Bender is good shite. So is swarovski and night force. I personally wouldn't use NF on a hunting rifle just because the ones I've had experience with are heavy as shite and bulky, but thats my opinion. I've shot them all and I shoot Leupold. That is not to say I would not use the others. They are all GREAT scopes.
I agree 100% with technology now there is a whole lot of really good glass. The only thing I was trying to say is that if you are going to spend that type of money I would only go one way. Just my 2 cents.
