Been looking at the list and have narrowed my scope choices down to the Nikon Monarch UCC $200 or the Zeiss Conquest $350.  I have looked at both scopes and can not tell any difference (hard to tell inside a store).  The only thing I can find is the Conquest does come with a lifetime warranty.  Is the Conquest worth the extra $150?

I like the Monarch I think it is a good scope.  I love my Conquest.  Both are good scopes, outside of the store if you did a low light comparison test the Conquest will be better $150 better?? That depends if you want to spend the hundered and fifty bucks.  There is not a HUGE difference but the Zeiss does have the advantage. 

 

Again you cant go wrong either way.  By the way welcome to the forums.

Welcome aboard, eddy.

 

either are good scopes, with a slight edge to the zeiss.

 

i would still highly recommend the elite 4200's - you can get the 3x9x40 for around 250 and it is a

wonderful scope - as good as the conquests in my opinion.

 

you can't go wrong with any of these though.

 

good luck.

Welcome To The OT, eddy!!

 

What power range??

 

I like the Conquest because it gives "Euro" features, for a fraction of the cost of a full blown Euro.

 

That said, the Monarch is a great scope choice and would serve 95% of most big game hunters well.

 

If you have the extra coin, pony up and get the Conquest.

If not, go with the Monarch WITHOUT an AO if your talking about scoping a big game rifle.
