Re: Leupold vs. Zeiss.
The reason I choose leupold is due to the the amount of elevation available.
The zeiss you mentioned, I think only has about 43 inches of elevation. If you
go up to the 50 mm it increases to 68 inches. Plus the turrets turn the
opposite direction (if that matters). I have two of the Leupold VX3 in the long
range version which have 116 inches of elevation in the turret.
Not trying to convince you in either direction, just things to consider. Would be
nice if zeiss made a 30mm tube that was affordable,
If only shooting to 500 yards none of this is going to matter but 500 can sometimes turn into 1000.
