What are your thoughts on this scope?
Eye-box, parallax friendly(quick throw-up to eye alignment on running game), eye-relief, tube space etc?

Is the 3-9x40 &/or 3-9x50 Conquests a better choice?



Thanks again

I have one on a Remington 700 chambered in 300 WSM and love it.

I just got one with the #4 riticle and I love it.Zeiss combines good eye relief with good field of view like no other scope I know. I like it  better than the Conquest 3-9x40 which is also a great scope. The 3-9 weighs 15 ounces while the 3.5-10 goes about 15.7 ounces. They are a little heavy but they are so good they are worth the extra weight. The 3.5-10 has good eye relief and a 35 foot field. The 3-9 has a 33 foot field and even more eye relief than the 3.5-10 but the 3.5-10 has  plenty of eye relief. If you needed huge eye relief for a 375 or 458 the 3-9 gets the edge. For anything else I like the 3.5-10 better but they are both great in my opinion.

What is the 3.5-10x44 "eyebox' like. As big as the 3-9x40??? Also, does it throw up to the eye for 'fast focus'???

Eyebox means allot to me! At times I need to throw the rifle up quick for fast shots. My Vx11 2-7x33 had exceptional eyebox & it's parallax didn't make it hard for 'quick eye focus'.
Sorry for all the questions but since I cannot try before I buy it's a must.


Thanks again.

I had a 3-9x40 Conquest and it was very nice but you did have to have your eye centered just right or it blinked out. It wasnt real bad but probably not as big an eye box as you would like. I have no experience with the 3.5-10 model. I do know that the Z plex in the 3-9x40 is different than that of the 3.5-10. The 3.5-10 model has a wider spacing between the heavy posts in the middle of the reticle while in the 3-9x40 the heavy posts come closer to the center of the reticle.

How about a comparison between the Z-Plex and Rapid Z reticle.  I can't make up my mind which one of these I had rather have.  I like the simplicity of the Z-Plex, but I also like the fact that the Rapid Z allows more accurate aiming for long distances.  Has anyone tried the Rapid Z in the field?  Is it too "busy" for quick shots in the field.  I will use my scope mostly for deer hunting in Mississippi with a occasional 250 to 300 yard shot.  Most shots will be a 100 yards or less.  Which one would serve me better?

The Rapid-Z is a great reticle, but if my shots were no more than 300 yards, I wouldn't bother. Holding just a bit high at 300 has always gotten me by. If you had many shots at 400 or beyond, then it would serve you well, but I don't see much use for it if you are shooting a fairly flat shooting round.

My wife is sleeping in the room my scopes are in. When she gets up I will get my vxll 2-7, the Zeiss 3-9x40 and 3.5-10x44 and compare them in any way you like. The post on the#4 riticle are very, very thick. They nearly come together but get thin where the crosshairs meet for an accurate 100 yard sight in or a pin point shot.

I own both a 3-9x40 and a 3.5-10x44.  Both have Zplex reticles.  IMO the 3-9x40 is the way to go.  It's more compact and lighter.  Those two qualities are important to me in a big game set up.  The 3-9x40 is always on my "go to" rifle.  I don't notice much difference other than size and weight.

Is there much difference between the light gathering ability of the 44mm vs. the 40mm, especially at dawn and dusk?

I've had both - I prefer the 3-9x40 for the added eye relief, larger eye-box, more FOV, etc.
 
The Rapid-Z reticle on my 4.5-14x44 which rests on my 6.5 Grendel and will soon be on my .308 OSR rifle is awesome for those applications.

It is pretty hard not to notice with scope boxes all over the bedroom. I just did not want to wake her up but she knows all about my guns and scopes and she has a few herself.

There is a difference between a 40mm and 44mm but unless you're constantly in really low-light situations you probably won't notice a big difference. Not as much as if you went from a 40mm to a 50mm - then you're talking pretty big differences in light gathering.

The 2.5-8x32 Zeiss has a field of view of 40 feet at 2.5 power and 13.2 feet at 8 power. Zeiss also has a Conquest 3.5-10x50 scope but it is heavy. I have the 3-9 Zeiss and the 3.5-10 x44 and the vxll 2-7x32 here together now. the eye piece of both Zeiss scopes is exactly the same. The size and shape of the two Zeiss scopes is almost the same. The 3-9 is .2 inches longer and of course the 3.5-10 has the slightly larger objective which makes it .7 ounces heavier. The 2-7 vxll is 4.5 ounces lighter than the 3-9 at 10.5 ounces. The 2-7 is 11.2 inches long. The eyepiece of the of the Leupold is a little smaller than the Zeiss. The eye relief of the 3-9 is the most with the 2-7 having less eye relief than the 3-9 but more than the 3.5-10. the Zeiss scope are a little harder to get on target than the 2-7 put it is not a problem. The 2-7 is less critical about eye placement so it would be faster to get on target. The 3-9 might have the edge on the 3.5-10 on this but it is close.

That is mighty helpful of you Sir. Thank you!
Thank you for the other comments also. Keep it coming men.

Hmmmmm so the 2-7x33 has 'less critical eye placement'. Yes, it has served me well over the years but I thought I would look into another more premium(better glass) scope for a custom rifle I have coming.
I wonder how the 2.5-8x32 Conquest would rate compared to the Vx11 2-7x33?
I might also look at another Leupy. Vx3 2.5-8x36 with a custom shop 'wide duplex'.
Have heard the Vx3 glass is near the Zeiss Conquests now??? Is this true???
I much prefer the WD over the standard Leupy duplex now, it's more like a Zeiss in some ways. Better for low light & fast moving targets IMO also. But I guess it's what I'm used too.

It seemed to me the 2-7 vxll was less critical on eye placement for a full field but the Zeiss scopes could get you on target pretty fast. I own a vx3 2.5-8 so I can compare it to the others. I am not a scope expert like some of the guys on here but I like good scopes. I got good help from this forum when I was on a scope buying spree so if I can be of any help to someone I would like that. I know it can be hard to make a choice when you can not see the scopes you are thinking about buying. From everything I have heard the vx3 has better glass than the vxll and is in the same class as the Zeiss Conquest. I like the Leupold 2-7 more than lots of the guys on here for these reasons. It is not too expensive. It is very rugged and reliable. It does not have glass as good as the vx3 or Conquest but it is good glass. It is very light with good eye relief. At the lowest power it is good for close work on moving or charging game. At the high power of 6.6 it should be good for long shots on big game. It can do almost all big game hunting jobs very well. Of course the vx3 2.5-8 and the Conquest 2.5-8 can do everything the 2-7 can do and they have better glass. I think the 2-7 and 2.5-8 might be a more useful power range for most hunting than 3-9 or 3.5-10.

I reckon you have hit the nail on the head mate.

If you get the chance. Compare the 2.5-8x36 Leupy to the 3.5-10x44 for me. That critical eye alignment means soooooo much on my rifle.

I have even asked Leupold(custom shop) if they can do me a Vx11 2-7x33 with VX3 glass & coatings. Will see what they say but it might be easier to just buy a 2.5-8x36 & get a custom shop 'wide duplex' added ;)

Sure, I have both scopes out now. These scopes are not on rifles yet so I am just holding them up to my eye quickly. Do you mean critcal eye relief. I looked that up in my Barsness book and that is the leeway you have in placing your eye behind the scope and getting a full field of view. With some scope you have to have your eye at just the right distance back or you do not get a full field. With other scopes an inch either way will still give you a full field. If this is what you mean then the 2.5-8x36 vx3 is better than any of the Zeiss scopes and even with the vxll 2-7 as far as criticle eye relief goes. In strait eye relief the Zeiss 3-9x40 and 2.5-8x32 have the most eye relief. The vxll 2-7 is 2nd place and the Zeiss 3.5-10x44 is a tie with the vx3 2.5-8 for least eye relief but they both have decent eye relief. this info. i am giving you on eye relief is not from catalogs which can be way of. I hold the scope as far from my eye as possible while still getting the full field and measure the distance to the front of my glasses with a ruler. As for critical eye relief the vx3 2.5-8 and the vxll 2-7 are tied for least critical by a good margin. The 3 Zeiss scope s seem about the same for critcal eye relief and they are all more critcal than the Leupolds. I just now noticed you are living in Australia. What kind of hunting do you do, for what animals, at what ranges and light conditions? If you can hunt at night then a 44 or 50 scope might be good. The 2.5-8 vx3 has a field of view of 37 feet at 2.5 power. The true power of the vxll 2-7 is 2.5-6.6 and the vx3 2.5-8 is really 2.6-7.8 and weighs 11.4 ounces. The vx3 1.75-6 is a 1.9-5.5 and has a 51 foot field and weighs 10.9 ounces. The vx3 3.5-10 is really 3.3-9.7 with a field of 30 feet and a weight of 12.6 ounces. The vxll  2-7 has a field of 42.5 feet and a weight of 10.5 ounces.

"critical eye relief" Yes I think it's called this. Not 'eyebox'. The Conquests & Leupolds all have superb eyebox IMHO, especially when one winds the Leupold eyepiece out a few turns. This makes the 'eyebox' sooooooo much bigger & better IMO.

Sir, you are a true star! Thanks again mate :)

My son reminded me that I had a 3-9x40 Conquest when they first came out(4-5 years back) but I ended up selling it because my Vx11 2-7x33 was a better hunting scope for me & my style. So I will leave the 3-9x40 alone this time around.
I also drive about 1 hour & went down to my LGS yesterday to see the Conquest compared to the Leupy. They only had the 2.5-8x32 & 3-9x40 Conquests but I compared these to my Vx11 2-7x33 & their Vx3 2.5-8x36. The 2-7x33, 2.5-8x36 & the Conquest 2.5-8x32 were superb. The 3-9x40 did not shine in the 'critical' eye department like the other 3, eyebox it did.
I did not compare(didn't have one) a 3.5-10x44 so that info I need to source. The Conquest 2.5-8x32 is looking the goods ATM. But I will see what Leupold say about a Vx11 with Vx3 glass & coating's ;)

Yes I'm in Australia mate. Sambar hunting is my thing! I hunt between(usually out for up to 8 hours walking) 7-6pm approx. My 2-7x33 set on 4 power has never let me down. Amazing scope for the $$$.

Cheers

The 3.5-10x44 Zeiss is very simular to the Conquest 3-9x40. It has less eye relief and goes up to 10 power instead of 9 power. If you never needed more than 4 power before then I would just forget the Conquest 3.5-10x44. It is a costly scope and a heavy one. I got mine used at auction. I love that scope but then I love all the scopes we talked about for different reasons. Did you look at the vx3 in 1.75-6x32? If you usually use 4 power it goes to 5.5 power and has a 51 foot field at low end. Is the 2-7 you have a vxll or the vari-ll? If it is a vari-ll they improved alot when they came out with the vx2. I am going to buy some Bushnell 6500 scopes. They are as good as the vx3 but with a huge power spread of 1.25-8x32 or 2.5-16x42 or 4.5-30x50. They are about $500 to $600 in the USA.

If you usually use 4 power it goes to 5.5 power and has a 51 foot field at low end. Is the 2-7 you have a vxll or the vari-ll? If it is a vari-ll they improved alot when they came out with the vx2. I am going to buy some Bushnell 6500 scopes. They are as good as the vx3 but with a huge power spread of 1.25-8x32 or 2.5-16x42 or 4.5-30x50. They are about $500 to $600 in the USA.      


I should I said. I keep my 2-7x33 on 4 when stalking(quick shots) but wind it up when needed. I actually used 7 power on it today, came in real handy. 8,9 & 10 would of been even better but it did the job.

I'm going to give the Conquest 2.5-8x32 & Leupy 2.5-8x36 some serious thought. Otherwise I'm thinking about lashing out & buy a Z3 or Z6. Will think it over over some whiskey ;)
