Thread: Zeiss Victory Diavari 6-24x56 FL or Swarovski Z6i 5-30x50 BT

    Zeiss Victory Diavari 6-24x56 FL or Swarovski Z6i 5-30x50 BT

    I am thinking about getting a new scope and have narrowed it down to these two, does anyone have any views which would be the best choice, also best place to purchase at a fair price.

    ive been looking at the same scopes myself(well the z6 not z6i) ,decieded on the swaro as its a hell of a lot lighter and finer adjustments on the turrets

    A few months back someone posted an independent comparison between several manufacturers and several of the scopes they made, including from memory these two. If I recall correctly, everything taken into account, the Zeiss came out on top but only just.

    I've looked through a swarovski 2.5-15x56 Z6i and a Zeiss 3-12x56 Classic one after another looking in to clear fell and woodland edge at dusk, I found Zeiss clearer and brighter.

    Only way to compare really is at dusk. During normal daylight there is very little between any scopes, the real difference only come clear dusk. Its all down to light gathering.

    Having said that I saw another article a few months back from a guy that had some of the top scopes and he posted the views through each at 5 minute intervals as night approached. The difference was minimal. I think that Zeis and Swaro gave an extra 15 minutes shootable light over some of the cheaper scopes.

    If you want to pay an extra 1000 for an extra 15 minutes shooting just before dusk, be my guest.

    I will spend the extra 1000 on a few days stalking in Scotland.

    You'll find that that extra 15 minutes (for example when Sika stalking) can make the difference between success and failure.Each to their own

    Well said Wsm an extra 15 minutes can make all the difference.

    I posted on another thread that the only time I may have had a need for an IR was when Sika stalking.

    May not be as fussed for that extra 15mins where Roe are concerned. JMO
