Having used 1.5-6 and 6x scopes for a lifetime I find my eyes could do with a bit of help
This means I'm in the market for a higher power variable. In my absence from the quality scope scene I realise that things have moved on somewhat not least the massive number of different models! Time was I'd have just bought a Swaro PV safe in the knowledge it was the best they did.
I don't want a Z6 - forgive me the thing looks like an alien, has a huge occular and I don't need 6x zoom. I'd be interested in a Z4 3-12x50 but I wonder what the difference is in the coatings for low light. Is there any reference to this in their literature?
Failing that I'm also interested in the Zeiss Victory 2.5-10x50 but the very short length makes it hard to mount on my long action rifle
