After receiving a Sightron catalog and reading a number of comments in the forum, I am  interested in the performance of Sightron SII Big Sky scopes. Of particular interest is the 3.5X-10X-42 model to possibly mount on a Winchester Model 70 in .30-06 used to hunt whitetails. How does this scope stack up against a similar configured VX-3, Zeiss Conquest, Bushnell 4200 or Nikon Monarch in terms of glass quality, image sharpness, clarity, ruggedness and other commonly used measures?

My bad! This post should have gone to the "Rifle Scope" section. Wrong click.

The Zeiss is the only contender in this post.

Steve, I don't know. Leupold's VX-3 has improved.  But I do like Zeiss over everything that the OP has listed.

Had a different model BigSky (4-16x) and it was great for the price.
It was a little better than my Conquests in low light and there was only 1 thing I didn't like about it- it had a sensitive eyebox and would blackout (faster than my other scopes) at higher powers if my head position wasn't just right... no complaints with glass or controls or anything else, really.
