I have two Kahles CL 3-9x42 scopes that I love, but I have been thinking about selling one and getting a Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10x44. What would I gain/lose. Opinions please
Other than slightly higher magnification on the high end that truly won't make much difference and a loss of FOV on the low end, absolutely nothing. The only thing I can see where you'd benefit is if the Conquest failed on you for some reason, you'll get better warranty service from Zeiss than you will Kahles right now, since Kahles doesn't currently have a US service center/distributor, and Zeiss has pretty good C.S.
To each his own, but I have a few Kahles and Conquest scopes, and to my eyes, Kahles is better optically, though not by a huge margin.
