    I have owned both and too me the zeiss is much better. Better glass, tracks better. I would get the Zeiss 3-9x40

    100% Zeiss. I have both and there is no comparison.

    I have had both. It depends on which one fits YOU and YOUR eyes better. For me, the Leupold is clearer, but both are excellent glass.
