    What you are paying for with the NF is a rugged, reliable, and excellent tracking scope. But don't expect the optics to be any better than a Zeiss Conquest or a Leupold LR, I have all three and morning and evening brightness is Zeiss, Leupold and NF in that order with Zeiss being the brightest.

    I question Zeiss' ruggedness. I had the Conquest 4.5-14x44mm with the rapid Z 800 reticle on my 300 RUM for a year. Until the internals fell apart and were rolling around in the scope tube for no apparent reason. Zeiss sent me a new one and I sold it and bought a Leupold Mark 4. Zeiss is clear and bright. But if it isn't rugged and reliable, what good is it? I'll never buy another.

    I am talking about the optics brightness not the ruggedness, read my response again.

    Who cares what your response was? I was simply sharing my experience with Zeiss.

    You guys are paying WAY to much for your Leupold MK 4's. I see you can buy Leupold MK 4 style scopes for under $200.00 on Ebay!
