Very good decision, you sure won't be disappointed. To do better than the Zeiss you have to boost the bucks spent by 2+X.

Re: zeiss or sightron??

I was glad to see this thread i have been kicking the same around. I now have a nfx 5.5x22 on my 338 rum that will be my back up or carry rifle with my edge. This is a factory sporter and to save weight i wanted another scope besides the nfx to keep the weight down. My buddy has agun shop and has a 6.5x20 zeiss i was looking at very nice but had the 1k yard reticle i didnt care for but was interested it in getting it in plain z-plex. Seems like others are happy with the zeiss glad to hear that. Was wondering how it would stand up for light gathering at a dawn or dusk shot?

I could hunt in the dark with my zeiss-victory-diavari-4-16x50-t-fl, If it were legal!!!!! Clear moonless but bright stars you could ID Bull or Cow in the middle of a meadow. With a little moon you could count the points.

While it's no Victory Diavari, low light performance is still better on the Conquest than the NFX. Features, NF > Conquest. Conquest is IPY meaning turrets are in 1/4", not 1/4 MOA or 0.1mil.
