Thread: Z6i 2.5-15x56 or 5-30x50 ?

  1. #1

    Z6i 2.5-15x56 or 5-30x50 ?

    I'm going to be purchasing a new swaroski scope and can't make my mind up on either the z6i 2.5-15x56bt or the 5-30x50bt.

    i intend to use the scope for stalking, foxing and occasionally targets out to 350-400m.

    Is there any noticeable difference in light gathering in the two scopes?

    Feedback from users of both scopes would be useful to help me make a decision, although I'm leaning towards 2.5-15x56

    Thanks John

    Go for the 2.5 x 15 x 56

    ive got one it's a great alrounder and in woodland as you can wind the mag off to 2.5 or on for a long shot

    and it's just a lovely quality scope

    I have to agree its a lovely piece of kit, love the illuminated red dot feature, clarity of optics is second to none.
    Just a shame I can see a fuzzy out line of a Jet-Z moderator when I turn it below 4 mag...

    Have a look at the new Zeiss V8, it's a 2.8-20x56 and will be on show on the Zeiss stand at the stalking show. Dealers that are there should have some available. Worth a look before you make a desiscion..

    Ive got a 2.5_15x56 z6i. Love it but if i was buying again id go for the 5-30 simply because its not usually used below 6x mag but i do quite often have it on 15x mag. But you wont be disappointed with either. Excellent scopes
