If not then id go conquest!
I have heard people say this but I dont buy it. better glass? how so? clearer? better coating? I have zeiss, leupold, high end leica Binoculars, you name it. I dont see a difference in my $3k Binos od mt $400 conquest or my $600 Leupold I truly dont think the human eye can detect a difference. and if you are saying you can see that the vortex is better than Leupold and not as good as Zeiss then you are really splitting hairs. If anything you are seeing coating tint and happen to like them in that order as far as clarity there is no way you are seeing that much difference.
I do however know there are color differences in each, to me leupold scopes look colorless and gold ring HD binos seem orangish as do Swarovoski EL's But my dad uses the Swaro EL's and doesnt see the tint that I THINK I see. So Maybe thats it
For clarity they are same so again.. pick what you like best.
