    I'm looking hard at these two models. I'd like to hear your thoughts on them. Primary use would be varmint and predator hunting. Thanks

    Zeiss is running a $50 mail in rebate which is attractive.

    I don't really liking the ballistic program on the Zeiss. If you are just using the line of site feature them not really a big deal. The multi-position eye cup is a nice feature.

    Neither the Leica or the Zeiss have a built in tripod attachment point which would be something nice to have if ranging out pretty far.

    I like that the Leica 1600-b gives hold over values (out to 880 yards) in mil or moa increments.

    Honestly it's a toss up. I went with the Leica personally because of the overall size of the unit.

    I have had both and prefer the zeiss due to the fact that I can hold it steadier than a leica. The Leica is too small for my hands.
