Default Bushnell Elite Tactical DMR II Pro 3.5-21x 50mm

Does anyone have experience with the new 'Pro' version of the Busnell DMR? Supposedly it has better glass over the older DMR II. I'm just wondering if it warrants the extra $500 cost.

Here's the Bushnell page with both scopes, there's even a compare feature, but I can't get it to function:

Thatís the older non-Pro model. Optics Planet doesnít even have the new Pro model yet. After discount codes and gift cards I can get the older model for ~$1300.

Iím just trying to see if the extra $500-600 is worth it for the Pro model

The only difference is in the ED Prime Glass. Would I pay the extra $500.00 for the glass, yes, guess Bushnell stepped up, here's where it describes the difference:

Now being in Razor Gen 2 3-18x, NF NXS 3.5-15x and Leupold Mk5 3.6-18x / Mk6 3-18x territory, what would you get?

What type of shooting will you be doing and what specs are important to you? Not sure what you're paying or your budget is for a DMR II Pro, but if its around $2k, then consider a used S&B PM II, Kahles, or Steiner M series.

I would get this equluvent to the Bushnell, a little less expensive at Optics Planet. What are you shooting, a bolt action rifle, and caliber?
