Was curious if anyone who owns this or has looked through it could compare to the new Swarovski Z6 scopes.  The new Swarovski series is the best scope I've looked through optically but I haven't had a chance to  do a side-by-side with the Schmidt & Bender, which I know people just rave about.  Hopefully a comparison test is coming later this month, but would like some opinions in advance.

ND2000, Is this an old model or an upcoming offering from S&B?  Unless one is in the works I'm not aware of, they don't offer a 3-9X42.  All of their current hunting scopes have 4X erectors, and the closest they offer to a 3-9X42 is a 2.5-10X56.

RifleDude -

I'm sorry, it was a 3-12x42.  My mistake.

hesitate with this because the scopes and purposes are different,-- and only have experience with the S$B "police" but to me the z6 didn't quite have the resolution, when I compared them against a standard grid chart at 100 yds, although the z6 had more light (totally subjective). and this was a 1.7x10 vs 4x16. really doesn't matter because the "target acquistion" and time on shot beat the kaka out of the S$B
