Light transmission on the Zeiss Conquest is much better than the Leupold VX3s. Better than my IOR 3-18x also when set to the same power settings. The IOR does provide better resolution, but it cost twice as much and weighs almost twice as much. I like the IOR better in the light of day, and I like the IOR reticle much better than the Zeiss mil-dot. But again, I consider the Zeiss Conquest to be quite a bargain. A darn good scope for the money.
How do Burris Black Diamonds compare to these scopes?
