Re: Video: Zeiss/Hensoldt Overview

Sweet, that's what I was hoping for, a favorable opinion from someone who's actually looked through it. Hopefully others who have peeked through it and will comment as well. Haven't thought threw it completely...mounting, height etc but, my first impressions of a 72mm objective is WOW!

The 72mm in low light really does help. So for the Dawn and Dusk shots the 72mm will help a lot.

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.

Also the edge to edge clarity and quick target acquisition on all of their scopes is outstanding.

Re: Video: Zeiss/Hensoldt Overview

I have the Hensoldt 6-24x72 mounted in a Near Mfg. Alpha ring-mount, which is bolted to a Near Mfg. 45 MOA rail. The rail is bedded to a 30-378 Improved 'smithed by Gordy Gritters. I've spent a lot of time looking through my Hensoldt, and, I can say that for low-light performance it cannot be topped short of going to some form of Night Vision.

Re: Video: Zeiss/Hensoldt Overview

It's been a long time since I owned the Zeiss 6-24x72, so I can't say with any certainty which is better in low light. I suspect the two scopes are pretty much the same in that dimension. I believe the Hensoldt has different coatings; at least I recall Nathan explaining the differences between the Zeiss 6-24x72 and the Hensoldt 6-24x72 and that was one of them.

Re: Video: Zeiss/Hensoldt Overview

I have been told by a few guys that they see better with their Hendsoldt than their Zeiss Diavari. I have been told this is do to the coating.

I just used mine Hendsoldt this weekend, it has some really, really nice glass. The Hendsoldt also has the fastest target question I have ever used, meaning it is very forging on head placement. I also run S&B, USO, Premier, and Nightforce as may main glass.
