looking to replace my swaro 4-12 Z3...need opinions

i bought a swaro 4-12x50 last year...great optics but looking for something thatll give me an edge at longer distance targets...mostly deer hunting...i thought 12x was all I would need but i was wrong.....what are some scope recommendations that would come close optically to competing with the swaro z3....i definitely want good glass as long as its CLOSE to being as good optically as the z3

so far ive considered the Conquest 4.5-14x50 and the HD5 5-25x50

even have considered a Burris or something a bit cheaper as long as it has good clear glass

NO nikon or bushnell tho ...bad experiences with those

Another vote for the Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 with target turrets.

I love mine.
