I'm in the fortunate position of being able to spend approx £1k on a new scope.
I was hoping for a z6i, 624i or zeiss diavari. However, I'm surprised how,they're holding their prices.
From what I can see, the prices on top optics have risen to crazy levels. The manufacturers have made a rod for their own backs by charging what they have and can't drop them back down as they risk alienating those who've bought at those prices. To me, this is one of the reasons we're seeing lower priced ranges from zeiss and nightforce.
Now my dilemma is this. Do I throw some more money at a scope, or hold out for the manufacturers bringing more ranges of more reasonably priced higher-mag optics?
If any members have any prior knowledge of impending new product launches, I'd be eternally grateful.
