Re: Swarovski vs Zeiss
I have a couple of Zeiss Conquests and love them! I've never owned a Swarovski so I am a little biased towards the Zeiss, but I've never had any problems with mine. I had one atop a Remmy 700 in .308 that survived a week of walking around in Canada going after Caribou & bear as well as numerous times in the field going up and down tree stands in NC/VA after deer. Like you, it is not on my long range rig. Plus I think they are a lil cheaper in price than the Swarovski's. Just my 2 cents, but then again I don't have near the experience most of the guys here have!
If it were me and money wasn't an object, I would say to just go to a store and look through all of them and see which one you happen to like the best.
