Zeiss or Swaro. Spotting Scopes?

As said above, if you were going to spend the money for a high end spotting scope which way would you go?

Both scopes are basically the same price which way to go.

Is it personal preferance or is there a difference between these two scopes.

Thanks

Sid

    Swarovski CTC 30 x 75

    Hi,

    Not sure about the Zeiss spotting scopes.(Most probably very good).
    But I have recently purchased a Swarovski CTC 30 x 75.(Draw scope).
    Very easy to carry and light at the same time.

    Used it during the stag season for 2 weeks in Scotland.
    In 2 words.'Absolutely brilliant'.
    Well worth the money.

    Good luck.

    I have looked thru most of the upper end glass and went with the Leica 77 APO. It is the best Spotting Scope I have ever looked thru... FWIW

    Just a thought

    I agree on the Leica. It is spooky what you can see. Eye glass friendly eye piece too. I was able to easily make out a scoring ring at 300m (about 1/8" line).

    Swav might not be the best choice if you wear glasses. I was using one at a F class match recently and it was horrible. I couldn't get a field of view larger then the top of a pencil and a big blurry black ring. What I saw was good though.

    Pentax ED glass is superb too and a bit less money. HOWA and KOWA have very very nice eyepieces. Less money too but the Leica was still the best.
