    Looking to spend around $800 on scope. Is there a better option for me than the Zeiss?

    IMHO....Nope! I have ?? 3 or 4>??? and wish I had more. Im going to be swapping for more though. I have a Redfield that IMHO is SAD....so a Zeiss can go on it. A 25-06AI that Im working with at present has a Nikon on it...and it is a pretty good scope...but falls FAR short of the price tag and the optices of a Zeiss.

    For the price the Zeiss is good stuff. I have a 4.5x14x50 and the glass in it is right there with my NXS NF , but the mechanicals on the NXS are in a different league.

    Optics wise, at that price point, bets you will get.

    Will the Zeiss track as well and hold a zero like the Night Force scopes do?
