Has any one been fortunate enough to compare the Lieca/Swaro/Zeiss 60mm line side by side?

I need light and packable and all three are within ounces of each other but I need performance in a small package...

TIA!

Genau -

That is perhaps slightly more fun than comparing high-end binoculars side-by-side!  I haven't focused as much on Leica, but have spent a fair bit of time with the other high end spotters.  I prefer the Swarovski.  In fact, its 65mm HD is probably the class of Swaro's scopes.  Much better edge definition at higher powers than the Zeiss, although the Zeiss does have a wider FOV.  Zeiss are warmer colored (yes, you read that right) than the Swarovski as well.

For a very good factual overview and also comparison test of the Swaro vs. Zeiss, I would go to www.betterviewdesired.com.  Check out the "Recent Review" page and you'll find it. 

Another really high-end spotter that I have not tried is Kowa.  People really speak highly of them though.
