Re: Zeiss or Leupold

When I had to make that choice 4 years ago I went with the Zeiss, still have no regrets.

That said not everybodys eyes are the same, I looked through the 6.5x20 VX3 and 6.5x20 Conquest side by side and the Zeiss was clearer to me by a noticable amount, others don't notice any difference, and still others prefer the Leupy.

Best thing you can do is look through both and let your eyes decide.

Have multiple of each (more Leupolds, MK4's, V3's), but the Conquests are defintely clearer and sharper IMO.

Re: Zeiss or Leupold

I've had both. Was a Leupy man, went to Zeiss. Now I'm back to the Leupies!! I'd go w/the Leupy if it were me. Just personal preference. Can't really give you a good reason other than unsurpassed customer service and the 30mm tube.
