help me decide which scope!!

trying to decide on a new scope

4.5-14x40 30mm tube leupold mark 4 mildot
4.5-14x50 zeiss conquest mildot

will be used primarily for hunting and some target
main concerns are low light, repeatable clicks

also not sure if the zeiss comes with side focus
and worried about bumping tacticle style knobs on the zeiss while hunting
we read an old post where some people talked about the zeiss but it didnt answer all my concerns...
any comments will be welcomed
thanks

I would save the money and go with the Conquest. It is a great scope and the 4.5-14x50 does have side parallax adjustment.

BTM

I've got 3 of the Conquests, two 6.5x20x50 and a 4.5x14x50 all three have side focus and are very repeatable as far as clicks go. They're also all are excellent in low light conditions. As far as the turrets turning on their own during transport or use I haven't had it happen, yet. I suppose it could happen in a scabbard on horseback but I haven't had an opprotunity to find out.

BTM, One of mine( a 6.5x 20) is on a 300 WM, I put it in Burris Signature rings with 2 .020 inserts for a total of .040. After sighting in dead on at 100 yds. I have 37 moa to adjust up, more than enough to get to 1000 yds. I beleive the 4.5x 14 has 67" total inches of vertical adjustment so if you're close to the center at 100 you should have 30+ moa plus the 20 moa base for a total of 50, more than enough.
