All are great. Leica is (at this moment) discontinued, I think (new model coming.)
Yes, that is correct. And that new model is priced in the stratosphere!
I have the Leica 77 APO, so I can't comment directly on the non-APO version of the 77. However, I would think the Zeiss beats the other 2, since they don't make a non-HD spotter. All of their spotters have fluorite (FL) glass. It is for this reason, along with the dual ratio fine and coarse focus adjustment that the Leica also has, that would steer me toward the Zeiss among these 3, since it is a better value for the $ spent, IMO. If it weren't for the fact I bought my Leica APO 77 used for a significant discount off the SWFA Sample List, I probably would have bought either the Zeiss, the Nikon ED 82, or the Pentax 80 ED that RC has. All are excellent scopes!
