    Has anyone compared the Zeiss to the Swaro ? I am talking the 60 0r 65 modles and not the 85 or the Swaro HD's. I have been hearing great things about the Zeiss and want to hear what you guys that have looked through both think??

    Thanks!! Jeff

    I compared the 2 along with the Leica several years ago. To be honest I couldn't tell a lot of difference. My preference was narrowed to the Leica and Swaro.

    I wound up buying the Swaro with 85 obj. lense from Bob Ward online for $1150 when everyone else was selling them for $1300-$1500. I have no regrets.

    Just for the sake of difference, I'd buy a Leica now if I was in need of another.
