The Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14 x 50 is a very good buy for the money!

I have 2 conquests and the glass is excellent in them. They track perfectly and work great. I would definitely choose them over the Leupold. Not saying Leupold is bad, just think the Zeiss is better.

Leupold has been left behind they are not in the same league as a zeiss ..

I have a 4.5x14-44 and two 6.5x20-50's they all track great and the glass is great for the price.

I have had all kinds and agree the Zeiss Conquest are the best bang for the buck and maybe the best bang at any price. They have amazing clarity and resolution. Today I was at the range with 2 Kahles 4x12x52's, a Zeiss Conquest 4.5x14x44 and a Swarovski 4x16x50 Habicht and the Zeiss was the one that would spot the bullet holes at 300 yards, the Swarovski came in last. I also have a Zeiss Diavari 2.5x10x50 and the Conquest has better resolution and clarity.

I have a Zeiss 4.5x14x50 #4 ret. on my .260 rem and a 4.5x14x50 with a standard duplex on my 300wsm and love them both, though the price has climbed a little on them these last couple years. Both have the target turrets and seem to track well thus far.
