IOR.

The Conquest is in no way tactical.

The Conquest has great glass but it would need your 20MOA base for any long range work, and Rancid is right, it is not a tactical scope.
The Conquest 6.5-20X50 only has 50MOA of elevation and a 1" tube. It probably has the best glass of the scopes mentioned and it looks tacticool, but Zeiss does not market it as tactical, and I don't believe it is sturdy enough for that application. IMHO

I'd say the IOR glass is close to the Conquest, definitely not significantly inferior to.

I agree. The IOR is of the tacticals mentioned the best glass, and a very good reticle.
