I am in the process of acquiring a couple more Kahles scopes as well.  I have a couple of projects coming down the pipe and I will be using a Kahles 8x50 CB, 1.1-4x24 C, and 1.1-4x24 CSX.  I'll have some reviews on them surfacing later this month.  So far, I am impressed, and at SWFA's samplelist prices, they are awesome deals.

Also, from what I have read. Swarovski only took over Kahles due to a death in the Kahles owner or something like that. Swarovski and Kahles has always been competiting, but most people consider'd Kahles as a 2 grade Swarovski and Kahles doesnt feel that way. 
 
So now with this split, I would have to say that Swarovski and Kahles will be going head to head and hopefully pricing will drop due to that, and quality stays where it is or steps up a notch.
 
I'm either going to get a Kahles or spring a few dollars more for a Z6.  HmmErmm

I'd be very surprised if there is anything out there that can make Swarovski drop their prices.  Either way, I really like Swarovski binoculars, but with scopes I am likely to go with Kahles.  The only Swaro scope that is truly of interest to me is a Z6 1-6x24.

I have not see the extended eye relief version in person, yet, so I can not comment on that one.  The 1-6x24 with 3.75" of eye relief and illumination was a very nice scope with an absolutely divorce-inducing price tag.

Now come one ILya!  You've been married long enough to know how this works.  You go buy the wife a $1900 piece of furniture, jewelry, or something she likes. 
 
Then you say "Honey, I sure need this scope......"  So the scope costs you $3800, and no divorce.  Just slap it on plastic.  It's the holiday season, and you're doing your part to support the economy!  Wink

So why would you lean towards a Kahles Scope?  Does current pricing have anything to do with it? Or do you feel like the Kahles is on par with Swarovski?
 
Thanks,
 
Yea, those Z6's can be something that induce a divorceOuch, but I have been told that a LE/Mil Discount is pretty substantial.

Current pricing is a part of it, but aside from that, I think Kahles scopes are not at all inferior to Swaro.

Inferior would be too harsh a word!!  Smile I would say they are extremely  close and if one is on a budget the Kahles would be first choice.
