First, I'm new to the forum.  Been lurking for a while now, and enjoy all of the knowledge that is here.
 
Now, I am looking to buy a new scope for my hunting rifle, for shots anywhere from 30-400 yards, and for extended bench time at the range.  The two scopes I'm looking at are the Sightron Big Sky 3-12x42 (no AO), and the Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 (AO).  Which of these is the higher quality scope, the better buy, and the one to get?  If the price for each was about the same, which one would be the "one"?  Thanks.

This was my choice when I had to make it. I have never looked back. It was more than I wanted to spend, but I don't regret it at all.
 
 
This would be an excellent buy for the application as well.
8630 Kahles 3-10x50 Helia CL Multizero 51723, Matte finish, 1" tube, plex reticle, side focus, fast focus eye piece, allows you to zero your scope at five different ranges, close to new condition. $1,315.00 $749.95
 
 Welcome to the OT.

I would pick the Zeiss also.  Plus, if you ever needed to sell it for whatever reason, the Zeiss will have a higher resale value.

499.95

http://www.swfa.com/pc-1513-259-zeiss-45-14x44-conquest-rifle-scope.aspx
749.95

and one with the rapid Z 800 or 1000 is 824.95
250 and 325 difference, that would be tough for me.

And NO I'm not a cheap skate, I'm FUGAL!!!!!   LOL

Go with the Zeiss!
