Hello all,
I have settled on the Zeiss Conquest and I'm set on the #4 reticle but I'm still  a bit stressed about whether or not to get the  3-9x40mm or the 3-9x50mm.  It's the difference between $429 and $500.  Money is tight but low light is when I shoot most of my deer.  Is there a big difference in additional hunting time gained?

There is not, as a matter of fact ( for my eyes) there is no difference between the 40mm Conquest and the 32mm Conquest. save your money. Bricat.

I agree, not a big enough difference.

I'm tellin' you Mike, That Conquest 4X32 was magical to look through at the wee last seconds of legal shooting time. Every bit as bright as the 40mm.

The 50mm may get you a few more minutes of hunting in low light conditions while the 40mm may give you better consistency due to head position/cheek rest.
