Re: Zeiss vs. Leupold

I am not sure either. You prefer the 44 over the 50? Most people seem too.

Re: Zeiss vs. Leupold

The Zeiss is by far the beter quality scope. the advantage of the leupold is the 30mm tube, not because it has larger internals for extra light transmission but it gives you more room for internal adjustment.
Zeiss should stick with 44mm Obj and get a 30mm tube, they would have a contender to take on the NXS and the like, but they won't do that because they have the Davari 6-24x56 with a 30mm tube that costs much more.

Re: Zeiss vs. Leupold

I have become a Conquest convert. I've been using IOR exclusively for around 10 years, and have become spoiled by this excellent euro glass. Over the past year I have bought two scopes for Kimber rifles. The IOR's in 4-14 are too big for an ultra light rifle so I compared Leuy side by side with Zeiss, and I bought Zeiss...twice!

Re: Zeiss vs. Leupold

How about the warrenty, how do they compare?

I think the Leupold has a lifetime warranty, and I have heard they are user friendly, how about Zeiss?

Zeiss replaced a Conquest that failed for me, in about 8 days. It cost me zero $..sakofan..They were very helpful.

Greenhorn,

Zeiss has a transferable life time warranty. They are good to deal with. Now days, Leupold is not the only manufacturer with a good warranty and customer service.

Re: Zeiss vs. Leupold

Jon, have you ever dealt with Nikon's CS dept?? Friends of mine have, and said they were great.

Unfortunately, my Nikon's have failed to fail, so I can't elaborate on the CS dept...sakofan... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
