Thread: New Zeiss Conquest HD5 riflescopes

  1. #1

    New Zeiss Conquest HD5 riflescopes

    I have Zeiss Conquest scopes and rate them highly. They also were good buy from the states before Zeiss introduced Duralyte line, but I still think they are good value and I like American range of mag better.
    Now new scopes are coming in with x5 zoom and 1" tube. New lockable turrets and T* coating and LotuTec.

    2-10x42
    3-15x42
    5-25x50

    Anyone going to the states anytime soon?

    One problem with some websites is that the data is not reliable. For me the weight of a scope is very important.
    The 5-25 is getting a bit heavy with over 700 grams compared to the older 6.5-20x50.
    The 2-10x42 being heavier than the 3-15x42?

    If the weight of the 3-15 were true it would make a fine lightweight stalking scope especially with the lockabel target turrets.

    thanks for the links.

    I for one would have the 5/25 with the rapid Z 800 on it,

    all i need now is to win the lottery along with all the others,

    I just bought the 5-25 with Rapid Z 1000 for my remington 700. I currently use Conquest 6.5-20 with this rifle. So when i will receive the new scope in a couple of days, i will compare it for you.

    Hows does your new 5-25 compare with your old 6.5-20? I have two of the latter model which I'm very happy with, but the new one looks really interesting. Does yours have the lockable target turrets? How do they work? Also, can they be reset to zero in the field without tools?
    If only they made a Mildot or similar measuring reticle that was true around 10x mag. It could be the perfect scope.

    I ordered a HD5 5-25x a couple of days ago with the z plex and lockable target turrets. I'd have liked the z-800 but decided that the turrets were more important and didnt like the z 1000 ret, just too busy.

    15 day wait for delivery from Zeiss then however long it takes to get from the ole US of A

    Will do - won't be till the end of Feb at the earliest as i'm currently working away till then.

    Not sure on the vat and import duty as it never seems to follow any rules to me. Last time I ordered some carbon race wheel from the states that cost over 2k adn was expecting a killer fee and the total was under 150, I'll let you know once I get the bill.
