But how about the side and down vu? There was a post by kmoose that compared the 50 and the 51 and the 51 appeared noticeably better at all depths. The 52 has the same side and down vu as the the 50, except weaker power, how can that be better than the 51 in side and down vu?

Doesn't the greater sensitivity of the 51 in traditional mode also make it a better choice? From a pure performance spec standpoint with cost not a factor, wouldn't the 51 be the best all around performer. I'm in the northeast, the water is dingy greenish blue and the seas usually choppy to somewhat rough. Given those conditions to Garmin customer service with a depth greater than 100' and they will tell you the 51.
