Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20 x50

Anyone using this scope? How is the quality in the glass? Does it return to your zero after making adjustments for different ranges?

I've got two of these scopes, love them both. I chose them over the Leupold & Burris because I felt they were clearer and brighter. I've been shooting with them for about 2 years now and have yet to have any trouble returning to zero after adjustments are made, or any trouble at all.

Zeiss also has this "square reticle adjustment", I read up on it a while back... Sound interesting...

Also, I have read individual reviews on Zeiss, and the Zeiss Conquest in general. People really like them, a lot.

Winmagman: Do your scopes have SIDE parallax adjustments or standard objective adjustments? Considering buying this scope and think I'd like side adjustment!

Both are the side focus model. What an absolute treat to use compared with my other scopes with the adjustment on the objective end. You can just close your scope eye open your off eye and see where you are at, no lifting your head up to read anything.

dakor,
I too have the Zeiss you are inquiring about. Took off my Nikon 6.5 x 20 and put the Zeiss on. Great scope, better optics even when I compared to the newer Leupold at the new Cabela's store as this is what I was going to buy, and I got it for less. Call Alex Roy or visit his web site www.Eurooptic.com, Great service. Good prices.
