i hope they do. leupold has one of the best selections for magnification in their scope line ups when compared to other scopes that are under 1000. i also find the vx3 glass to be great and their craftsmanship to be great as well.
many on here who own the minox, zeiss conquest and vx3 all say the conquest has the best glass but the vx3 has better craftsmanship and is lighter. the vx3 glass is great. and ive used the conquest at a range. yeah the conquest may have better glass, but it doesnt light up the night. i hunt with my scopes.
this will probably be the same price as a swaro z3. i cant see it being more than 1k because there is a huge price jump from the vx3 line to the vx7 line.
its easy for leupold to contend with scopes that are priced to about 700. but once you get to $750 swaro and zeiss and other high end companies start to kick in and based on the name (and quality) and leupold probably made nothing on them. i mean sh*t, even id buy a swaro (unless we are talking tactical).
again this is all just opinion. but ill tell you now, id take a vx3 over a 6500 any day. so i doubt the vx6 if made wouldnt be as good as a 6500. then again id take a 4200 over a vx2 so bushnell kinda balances out there for me
