WOW!! I thought I'd do some research on optics for a MKIII and found several! Barska, Sightmark, Bushnell, EOtech, Truglo, Trijicon, Burris etc just name a few. Reading the reviews I see that on almost everyone someone has had a bad issue or review. I guess I just need to decide on how much I want to spend....

I thought I had a hard time deciding on which pistol to get, now I am back to the drawing board with optics...... :?

supv26 ... First of all, Welcome to the forum ... Glad to have you aboard. Secondly, you are correct that there are many optics choices for your MKIII and you will receive many varying opinions here regarding which ones are best (ultimately, only you will be able to decide that based on your specific needs). When I faced the same challange a few years ago for my MKIII512, after much research I decided to go with the following:
* Barska red dot up to 50' http://www.opticsplanet.net/barska-elec ... 10632.html
* Nikon Monarch UCC 2x20 EER Pistol Scope for longer distances
Both have served me very well ... Good luck with your decision.

Here is one you won't have problems with, the JPoint.

JP Rifles makes a rock solid 1/2 ounce reflex sight and mount for the MKIIIs with an adjustable rear sight. I'm using mine for Steel Challenge competition and it is great.

The C-More Railway is an option too, they are very popular for competition and they are very solid construction, although they are bigger and heavier than the JPoint.

I too will welcome you to the forum!
I noticed a glaring example of a quality red-dot optic MISSING from your list,,, C-more.
That is THE main red-dot optic for competition shooters for it's durability and quality. It's trusted when a lot of serious $$ is on the line for top level competitors.
You might look at them a bit,,! And yes,, good optics can cost as much,, if not more than the firearm they go on. Same as good optics on hunting rifles,,,!

I have a Barska on my Mark III 22/45 and it works very good. I use it for Speed Steel and let other first time shooters use it.
