    Got a few of them 8x56s 6x42 1.5-6x42 and 3-12x56 as clear as my S&Bs and ziess well made German optics been very reliable and hold zero on all rifles including my 375 h&h

    Cross hairs too thick on the one i had. Nothing special. I'd rather have a tatty s&b

    Interesting as I thought they had pretty well standardised the cross hairs especially in German/Austrian optics to a number of styles each of which has it's own reference number like #4a or #7.

    had a 8x56 on my very first c/f a 700 22\250 shot a lot of stuff with that at night it was great .......at the time

    I used to own an 8x56 and compared it side by side with a S&B 8x56 in both daylight, dusk and under the lamp. Both I and another experienced shooter could see absolutely no difference whatsoever.
    Hope this helps.

    I believe Docter Optik look after repairs spares on Lisenfeld as the company is no more. I would agree the 6x42 I owned did have a particularly heavy #4 reticle not good for precision but good in low light, subtended to approx 25mm at 100m. Optically very good, very basic controls but typical German build quality.

    The owner died and the business folded.
    There is a chap on egun selling off all the old stock in dribbles, I guess be took all the leftovers but if they are 2nd quality who knows, the one that I bought from him I could not get it to keep the shots together on a 270win.
