I don't know how many revolutions per turn, but they have 65 MOA of adjustment. That's the same as a viper pst with a 30mm tube but you get it in a lighter, more compact 1 inch scope.

Looking at the few pictures I've found, I want to say 20moa.

With a 50mm objective, it's not going to be much more compact. The 42's should be though, might make a great scope for a lightweight sheep rifle. I'd also like to see how the locking turret works.

I too would like to see how the locking turrets function. The 1 inch tube won't make a huge difference on weight, but it doesn't hurt it's adjustment range either so it's a toss up in my book. I do wonder how much more travel they could have got with a 30mm tube though...

I imagine the glass will be really good. I'm interested to see some first hand reviews.

Re: Zeiss conquest HD 5x25- 50

65 moa is enough for most users. If set up with a 30 moa rail this should give you around 60 moa up. That would get my 300 win out past a mile at my altitude.

As long as the turret revolutions are in 10's either 10 or 20 would be fine for me. I just hate it when a mfg. does something stupid like 12 or 13 moa per rev. That can get confusing.

Sorry if I missed it but what is the MSRP?

Jeff

Re: Zeiss conquest HD 5x25- 50

I am also very interested in puttung my hands on one of these scope. I am looking at the 3x15x42 model. I thought cameralandny said the elevation was 70 and windage was 50 but I could be wrong. I would like to hear some hands on reviews before I buy one. Sorry the elevation is 65 on the 5x25x50 but he 3x15x42 is 70 moa.

999.99- 1074.99 depeding on reticle choices.

Not too shabby I guess.


Am I the only one thinking it looks funny with that iddy biddy tube & 50mm obj?
