Zeiss\' Customer Service (Update)
I just relocated to Alaska this past month. Believe it or not, I had Zeiss' President, Mr Robert Siemers, call me at my house prior to my move here. As I stated in above thread, he apologized for any inconvience and instructed me to send the scope directly to him. We had a great visit on the phone and I believe he was geniune in his conversation. I did just as he instructed. Again, he seems to be a great American.
He politely kept me updated on its progress via email. I cut one of his emails in here.

Wow! I got it back really fast. Man, I am so happy! It is now just as good as the day I bought it.
The quality of work seems excellant. He also sent me a new Zeiss hat, and their excellant lense cleaning kit.
As a matter of fact, I have recently purchased another Zeiss, a Conquest 3X9 for my 375 RUM. I have always used Leupolds in the past, but thought i'd try the Zeiss Conquest. I put the Conquest 3x9 to the test beside my Leupold Vari X III 3x9. At 200 yards, the Leupold struggled in clarity next to the Zeiss. With the Zeiss, you could see way more detail in the target. I'm sold!
After talking with Mr. Siemers, and the way they handled my situation, I am a "now" a loyal and very dedicated Zeiss fan.
