I'm with you on the clarity and resolution of the Zeiss Conquest. I have a Zeiss Diavari 2.5x10x50, a Kahles AH 3.5x10x50, 2 Kahles CL MZ 4x12x52's, an IOR 6x42, a Burris 4x16x50 Black Diamond and a Zeiss Conquest 4.5x14x44 RZ800 and I can say that the Conquest is by far the best for clarity and resolution. I form this opinion by experience from looking for bullet holes in targets at 300 to 600 yards. I don't carry a spotting scope to the range anymore but my spotting scope sucks.
My Diavari and Kahles CL's are brighter though, the Burris does not compare but the Ballistic Mil Dot matches my 22-250 perfectly.
If the Huskemaw
did have glass to equal the Conquest then there would be a lot more rave reviews around than there are.
