I voted Zeiss.  Their high end scopes are great and the conquest line is a very good scope for the money.

At the moment, it is the Premier Heritage.  Glass is fantastic, turrets are great, reticle is great, build quality is great, tracking is great.

It is a great scope.

Ziess Victory and USO SN3 are tied for second.

I can't vote in this poll.  I have no "favorite" or, you might say I have a number of favorites... for different reasons.  
However, if someone would like to purchase a Hensoldt 6-24x72 SAM for me, THAT will be my favorite... I promise.

Depends on the application. For killin' stuff short to medium range I'd vote Trijicon. For weight and looks then Leupold. Bang for the buck means Sighron. Sighron again for long range snipin'.

I can't afford the really expensive stuff.  I am a Burris fan.  A lot of people seem to not like the, but I have had great scopes from them so far.  Very rugged, and that is what I need.

I voted Leupold as best all-around!...........While optically not having the best price for what one gets as others have better glass, you do get the best selections in variables and reticles. The Leupold scopes offer the best selections in lighter weight DGR scopes and lighter weight more compact scopes in the higher powered variables.
 
Add on the generous eye reliefs, their great looks and their excellent customer service, you have the best all-around scope imo.

I picked Bushnell and Leupold because they work and rarely fail, I think they are all around the best buy, maybe not the best as in WOW! factor or look what I got! but good genuine quality and good optics that's all you really need. Of course if you have the bucks and don't mind spending get the best.

This is a hard decision. up until 4 weeks ago the choice would have been the Burris with the B-plex for my favorite all around scope. Now the choice has to be the Zeiss 3-9X40 with the Z-600 reticle. I edges the Burris in several ways. Torrents are easier to adjust and the Z-600 has a windage scale. The optic have a slight edge also. The on line Ballistic calculator makes this scope easy to switch rifles and calibers with out much hassle.

I am voting for Leupold due to the number of reticles offered, the number of niches covered, the name recognition, the customer service, and the decent optics.

Says I can't vote...Guess because I'm a FNG.
Probably be my 10x SS for simplicity, reliability, and a price that makes me feel like I stole it.

I picked Swaro. I like their design, looks, durability and variability. You have a decent reticle selection, both FFP and SFP models and great glass. My next choice would be the compact NXS Nightforce.

Leupold, in general, because of the confidence I have in them.  Everything else I have put on a rifle, including the really expensive stuff, has disappointed me in some way.

If I had to narrow it down to just one brand, I would go with Zeiss.  However, that's a tough call for me, because I like certain models of scopes from most of the brands listed.
