    I think alot of people are slow to change. I never thought leupold glass was great! wish it was and I would pay extra if it was. I was one of the first people to have NF scopes. And when at the range, The so called experts said Nightforce scopes suck! till they looked through them. Now nightforce is one of the top long range scopes. But if all out glass performance is needed Ziess & S&B blow the doors off of leupold for low light and tough conditions. I wish a american company would make better glass. I use a S&B 4-16-50 PMII It is my favorite. But I would like to see higher magnafication. I have several Nightforce like them to. As far as my general hunting guns Leupolds have been replaced by Ziess conquest and one Nikon 4-16-50 Tactical.

    This guy is not in your area, but he seems to have pretty good deals on Nightforce. Check out D & B supply at www.scopeusout.com.

    Another Zeiss fan here. Leupold makes a helluva scope, but the clarity of a Zeiss wins hands down. That along with return to zero and ruggedness. I own (2) 4.5-14 Conquests and have absolutely no regrets whatsoever.

    Jimm

    The Zeiss Conquest is a newer scope and a lot of people
    are comparing them to older leupold scopes they have

    NO question The Zeiss will look better than the older
    scopes {any brand}.

    The Preceved brightness can be from the focus,lens coating
    type of light, Ect.

    I recomend that you do side by side comparsions with
    both scopes and use the new VarX III of the same size
    Max power on both,focus both and then try to read something
    way off at least 500yrds or more.

    Then look at other features like eye relief{very important
    on a hard kicking rifle}

    Side focus or front focus.

    Lenght& weight.

    And price.

    Then if possible check for light gathering ability
    by seting up before daylight and as light improves
    keep looking through each.

    They are both good scopes and the decision is yours.

    Good luck.
