Mid price scope with large field of view like my Swaro Z6

I need to outfit my 2nd rifle and have been spoiled by my Swarovski Z6 and its giant field of view and generous eyebox.. (3-18x50) Is there a middle tier company that has something like this that is more affordable? Something that has a easy time holding onto an image at 18x like my Z6 and is not so tunnel like..

I really don't want to break the bank again!!

    I've got a Leupold VX6 in 3X18 that I like. They go for around $1200 - $1300 if I recall. I has pop up to zero turrets, 1/4 moa clicks and 20 moa per rev. Nice and clear at any setting.

    The Leupold VX6 has capped turrets (they are low profile) and it is a 2nd focal plane scope.

    Why not the Z5?

    That is a possibility... I just got a Zeiss HD5 5-25 and found the glass good but the smallish view and almost impossible ability at 25x to hold onto an object without losing it frustrated me.. It was like 3/4 of the view that the Swarovski has. It is going back.

    Any other scopes with a big view like the Swarovski Z6 yet between $600 and $1400?
