Is the Swarovski Z3 any different in optical clarity or brightness over the older AV model?  I'm looking at upgrading my Leupold to one of these two in the 3-10x42 range.

Thanks!

If you can find an discounted AV off the sample.com, I think it would provide a good solid investment over the Leupold and yes the AV/Z3 offer very nice optics.

No, it's optically the same.  Swaro made some cosmetic changes and renamed the scope in keeping with their "Z#" naming format to denote the zoom ratio.

I got a Z-3 off the sample list a couple of weeks ago. To merge this from another thread, it's a keeper. I love it.
