I currently own a Zeiss 4.5x14x44 Conquest and am real happy with it, it happens to be my best scope. The Swaro Z5 3.5x18x44 at about 5 to 600 dollars more is also very attractive. both these scopes fit the criteria and usage parameters I am looking for.
My question is, is the optical quality of the glass on the Swaro worth the price difference.
 
I would like to hear your opinions.
 
Thanks
 
Charlie

I've compared a Swaro 6-18x50 to a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x50 and like most things, there are +/- with each.  The Swaro is the brighter of the two when its dark.  In broad daylight they are both pretty close.  I feel the Zeiss has better eye relief and the reticles are very dark (contrasting).  For the $$$ I believe the Zeiss is hard to beat.

I do not believe the price difference warrants itself purely based on the glass. Maybe look at the other features the Swaro offers and then decide.
