This an old post I found, but I was wondering how everyone felt about the Burris euro diamond??
I'm considering the 2.5-10 for a 270wsm Tikka for mostly whitetails in PA,  but occasional trips out west and alaska.
I'm also looking at the ziess conquest 3-9 and the 4200 elite. 
I think I'll like the ballistic plex rectical, but haven't ever actually used anything like it.  I'm looking at a $450 max.
I believe the ziess has consistant eye relief regardless of magnification which sounds nice, but is it really that big of a deal? 
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Kahles, Swarovski and Zeiss have a couple of different scope lines which are different optically.  I'd be cautious about blankly stating that Zeiss is better than Kahles for example.  Kahles CL seems better than Zeiss Conquest, but Zeiss VM/V is better than any Kahles I've seen yet and Zeiss Conquest, to my eyes is slightly better than Kahles American (marginally though).

Anyhow, here is my take on these:

Zeiss VM/V
Swarovski PH
Kahles CL
Swarovski American Light Weight
Zeiss Conquest
Kahles American Hunter
Leupold LPS and Burris EuroDiamond
Bushnell Elite 4200
Burris Signature Select
Leupold VX-III
