Need help choosing a new scope

I recently sold my other scope and have about $1800 to spend on a new one. I have narrowed it down to 2 models and I need yalls help deciding. I can get a deal on a Swarovski z6 for $1800 so im really considering that one in the 2.5-15x56mm
or the
Kahles c 3-12x56mm

Which would be yalls choice and why? The kahles is around $1300 and 10% off of that.
Thanks
JK

    In terms of glass clarity and brightness the Z6 is the way to go...however I don't think that you would be real heartbroken with the Kahles either. Is the Z6 worth $500+ more than the Kahles, that's really an answer that only you can come up with yourself. Me personally, I think that the Z6 is the way to go. Good luck!

    You've narrowed down a couple of excellent choices!

    For your consideration >>> Leica ER 3.5-14x42 with IBS G7 reticle >>> I found love with Leica scopes

    Good luck!
