Thank you Gypsy. Any reason for #3 over #1? I have been leaning towards number #1. However, I have only been researching this for a couple days so I am very new to this and what to look for.

The first one is bigger in terms of spread and also has good numbers. Go for it. I didn't look at spread. Just at clarity and the numbers. I'm a fan of 35/40.6 combos.

Do you think the difference in size between 1 and 3 will be noticeable to the naked eye? Will the difference in depth ratio between the two make any difference in performance? Thanks a ton for your input it's much appreciated.

Not an expert, but I think that the difference in size wouldn't be much noticeable to the naked eye. Looking at your options above, I think you should go with #1
