Almost all of the newer scopes these days are using excellent coatings on their lenses that pass more light than the last several generations of scopes. Best thing to do if you really want light transmission is to get a fixed power scope with fewer lens groups, and a scope with a 50 mm objective for a better light gathering.

Other than that, a scope can be a pretty personal thing IMO. what works for some people- like side focus or AO, target turrets versus covered turrets, variable versus fixed power, scope size , mounting options, can all figure into what makes your rifle comfortable to you. Aesthetics are also important for some (like me), and some scopes have a very large variable power adjustment ring which can interfere with bolt throw. A lot to consider, but worth it once you get it right and you are out in the woods knowing your rifle is just the way you want it...
