    A looked after, unmolested Nikko should do the trick, point being enough people are using them, understand them and doing well with them where the Falcon is still an un-known quantity. Also you can actually GET HOLD of a Nikko where as far as I can tell the Falcon instrument is still unavailable.

    Compared a pre-production T50 to one of my Nikkos (Mk2) and yes the Nikko was clearer opticly and generally felt nicer in use (As it didnt have a wheel on or calibrated ranges i'm not going to compare the ranging) On the strength of this I went and bought another Nikko, all has been fine so far with both instruments.
