Re: New scope for a first build?
The Zeiss 6.5-20x50 and 4.5-14x50 are both excellent scopes! I have 2 Conquests, and have another on lay-away at my local store, so soon to be 3 of them. That will make two 6.5-20x50's and one 3-12x56 30mm FFP.
I would put them just under my Kahles Helia KX 3.5-10x50, which is about twice the price of the Conquests. They are not quite as crisp as the Kahles, but they are certainly as clear. The Kahles also has some rediculous low-light abilities, but once again, the Conquests are right behind it.
