Zeiss vs kahles

Does anyone know which scope brings in more light at dawn or dusk. I am looking at the Kayles 4-12 or the Zeiss 4-14 in them
Thanks Ted

    What models of scope within each line and what size tube? I use a Kahles Helia KX 3X9X42 on my main hunting rifle (25-06). I have used a Conquest 3.5X10X44, but prefer the Kahles. Both are 1" tube, but to me the Kahles is clearer and 'brighter'.

    Ditto on what Skywalker said. I had a 25 yr. old Burris go TU on my 30/06 this past weekend, and will replace it with a Kahles. M y other Kahles is on my 7WSM.

    I think Kahles has better glass than the Zeiss Conquest line.

    The Zeiss Victory models have no peers.

    Have you gotten yourself a look through a Zeiss Victory model scope?
