    Swarovski / Zeiss Binos vs scopes preferances

    Was at Richmond Park the other week and saw 5 bird watchers get out of their cars and kit up. All of them had Swaros round there necks . It reminded me of a PH who once told me his wealthy German client used to state that 'Zeiss for binocular, Swarovski for riflescope' (in his best German accent).

    I'm sure, as always, this just comes down to personal preference but wondered if there was general popularity for one vs the other dependant on them being binos or scopes?

    I can only talk from personal pref, but it's Swaro binos with Swaro scope on one rifle, and Sightron on the other.

    Many will swear by Swaro, Zeiss, S&B, Leica, MINOX, Leupold, Sightron, Nightforce, Nikon, Bushnell, etc etc etc, but you will do a lot worse than getting hands-on with as many alternatives yourself.
