Video: Zeiss/Hensoldt Overview

YouTube - ‪Zeiss/Hensoldt Overview‬‎

The 6-24x ranges at 12x but after I did the video I was think about, if at 12x the spacing is 1mil then at 24x the spacing would be a 1/2mil, I like this fact. It also keeps the reticle nice and thin. For you log range hunters the 6-24x72mm are a great way to go.




What do you guys think?

Thanks,

Mike @ CST

Good video. The 72mm is huge, in your opinion any advantage that you've actually seen/observed with the 72?

Better view and low light performance.

Yes that is generally excepted and expected but not always the case...that's why I asked and worded it as follows: actually seen/observed with the 72?

So can I take it you have actually looked through one? How much better is the low light performance?

How does one quantify that? Each set of eyes are different. Let's just say that the S&B 5X25X56 in exceptional in low light and the 72MM objective Zeiss/Hensholdt is a bit better

In the form of an opinion and that's all I was looking for...from those who have actually spent some time looking through one...Have you and is that your opinion based on looking through one or haven't you? I'm just looking for some opinions from those who have actually looked through one.

I looked through one a short time ago and yes bigger is opticaly better, but the size is a bit outside of my taste
