Now the question, do I want an ELCAN in a few months, or an Aimpoint T-2 Rright now?
Kind of depends on the purpose of the rifle. Obviously for close range work, a red dot is a red dot. T2's are tiny, and tough. They don't cross over into the mid range territory at all though.
Elcan Specter DR 1x/4x is the ultimate rifle sight for rifles that require close and intermediate capability. I've used the bdc in my elcan to engage targets out to 800yds, and it will do 500yds with boring regularity.
If you'd like to talk it out or pick one up sometime, just give me a call. :)
