Lpart, what do you mean when you say "if it weren't for the light you would stay with the Zeiss"?
Just curious. I am using a NF 2.5-10 with the NP-R2 reticle. I use the G7 BR2
rangefinder that gives corrections in MOA, so it works great with this reticle. The light gathering capabilities of my Zeiss scopes with the 44mm objectives was noticeable better in low light conditions than the 32 mm of the NF, but it is good enough.
