For $200, Oberwerk or Apogee?

Oberwerk 20x80mm $199
Apogee 20x100mm $199
Just wondering if the extra 20mm amp would negate the difference in lens coatings and quality differences between the two. I must admit the idea of having two 4” refractors that are bigger than my telescope is appealing, however, I would rather have as good a quality as I can for under $200.
Also, is it worth the extra $50 for the Oberwerk 20x80 over the 15x70?

The only difference you might notice when comparing the 100 mm vs the 80 mm is a wider useable FOV in the 100mm due to the larger lense, (considering that it's a quality instrument) and slightly brighter image (depending on were you view from).
Hope this helps...
