Hello:  I have several service rifles in .30-06 caliber and I'm thinking about upgrading to a higher grade riflescope.  Two models in the same price range catch my eye:
1. Nikon Monarch-X 4-16X50 with mildot and target knobs
2. Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14X50, also with mildot and target knobs

The Nikon has a 30mm tube, but Zeiss has the reputation for superior glass, esp that final polish.  It's difficult for me hereabouts to see them side by side.  Is anybody in a position to compare them on optical resolving power and quality of W&E mechanism?  thx - CW

Well I don't see you getting any answers so I will say I have the conquest scope and find it bright and resolute. The side focus works excellent and the tracking and holding POI are faultless. I'm very pleased with the scope and would not hesitate to recommend it. I own several conquests and they are all good scopes. If you have problems zeiss provides great service and warranty but it can take some weeks if it has to go to the factory in New York. I have no experience with the nikon so I can not comment on it at all.

The Monarch X, from what I've read, is a renamed Nikon Tactical. I haven't seen the "X", but if it's anything like the old NiTac, then it's a very nice scope.
But, as Focus will tell you, so is the Conquest.
This review of the NiTac may be a little dated, but Dave B. is good to go.
For having a 30mm tube, the lack of "up" on this scope is one thing that bugs a lot of people. Me included.
