If you have seen them and can't decide, there is no way we can decide from some numbers. They could all be very nice, and you said they are. I would eliminate #3 since it is a bit smaller than the others.

We saw them in different lighting conditions. So that''s why I''m asking for EXPERT opinions. I am no expert.

Ideal Scope will solve the lighting problem for you. From this end, #1 is probably the safest choice? Good luck!
