My dealer told me that the new Leica 82MM he saw at SHOT SHow was FANTASTIC. Can't wait to check one out! NJS

    That matches with my experience!

    but if I had to choose between Leica and Zeiss, definetlyy the Leica! (ever had a service at Zeiss? -> never again!)

    Might be a little late but heres my 0.02 I have the Leica 77 APO Televid 20-60X i've never look for another after them. The APO (Fluorite Glass) model is there best over all.

    If you are shooting distances beyond 500 yards, the real question is: Will my spotting scope define 6mm or larger bullet holes on paper under most conditions, i.e., hard mirage & bright sunlight? The answer cannot be determined by looking thru a scope in the store, nor by judging how bright the image seems to be. Only real conditions can provide the answer. Many high end scopes will not always pick up bullet holes at those distances. And much of the equation depends on the condition of your eyes. Now, spotters used for hunting are another matter, and the criteria for those is considerably less.

    Maybe some are experienced enough or good enough to identify the better glass/optics in a store.

    I need to compare them in the field before I can have any confidence in selecting the better optics for my uses, which by the way are also in the field.

    Hey Gene,

    Yes, the Leica is pricy... maybe it comes with your choice of blonde or brunette? <wink> NJS
