Hello, I have a new Nosler M48 in 7mm08 and am thinking of putting a new scope on it. At the moment I have a Leupy 2.5-8 x 36 and it is quite adequate for shooting deer in New Zealand out to around 300m, but like everyone I like to have the "good" stuff so am considering a Swaro.
My question is does the new Z6 offer anything over the standard models apart from the extra zoom? Is the glass and coatings the same? Also we are allowed to shoot at any time of the day or night so a scope that is great in low light is an advantage to me. I am not sure if I want to go to a 50mm objective as I don't want to upset the balance too much as we do a lot of walking up hills and mountains so a light rig is good.
Would be interested to know your thoughts on what scope you would put on?

if you can go the dollars for the swaro without looking back - goferit. if budget is something, I don't know if its that great. the 2x12x50 is a rather large scope, about the size of the leo 6.5x20 or just smaller than a 3.5x15 NF.  and the eyepiece is proportionately just as large. , would the 1.7x10 be better than a leo, 2.5x8 -- no doubt --- its about the size of a zeiss diavari 2x10,  unable to answer on low light- this is different for everybody-
