    Is the night vision of the 522 worth the price difference? In a defensive use, is it even feasible?

    Do you have night vision goggles? Doesn't the night vision feature only apply if you have night vision goggles? If it's like the Aimpoints, the night vision feature is just a much-reduced dot brightness that doesn't wash out in your night vision goggles.

    Same thing with the 552 (I own one.) When you hit the NV button the reticle disappears (the brightness is reduced.)
