    had both at one time or another, and all ill say is i still have the zeiss duralyt 3/12x50 and a 4.5/14x44 conquest,

    mind you i am looking for a scope with a tad more mag and McLeod's have a few in there just now,(fancy a swaro with a tds ret) but being in a part time job and more skint than a tarmac surfers R's im not going to get there anytime soon,

    IMO: not worth the price tag, i find nikons ok but nothing more than that certainly not worth what they are priced at.

    I too have the Duralyt and can't fault it. A quality piece of kit at a reasonable price.

    I would wager more stalkers here have a Zeiss scope than a Nikon.

    I agree Bob, if i was spending 1000 it certainly wouldnt be on a monarch. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with them but i would go european for that money!!

    Think the duralyt would be the better option out of the two

    Something else to consider is which one will hold it's value better and be easier to sell should you fancy a change.

    Zeiss or Nikon...hmmm

    What's in a name...quite a lot actually.

    I bought from these people http://www.theriflescopestore.com/nimosc.html - 'do the math' a $700 top end Monarch (made in Japan not the Phillipines if that matters) will arrive here with VAT to pay and still cost you less than 600. Now does the Zeiss look so cheap? And can you read the maker's name through the eyepiece? Do you want functionality or bragging rights? The users of this site seem to place more store by the latter!
