      David,

      I've used both. My review of the FLT in on CN in the CN reports
      section. I'm working on a review of the 105.

      If price is an object, the 105 is a nice scope, and I'm seeing some
      very nice images coming out of it. If price is no object - the
      FLT-110 takes no prisoners. Seriously - the sample I was shipped for
      review had absolutly supurb optics, and competes with anything -
      *anything* else on the market for visual use.
