I'm in the market for a set of "big eyes" which will be used to glass open country for big game as well as used in LE surveillance work. They will be used on a tripod, not handheld, so the magnification isn't a question. I have it narrowed down to these two choices and I can get both for the same price. I have no experience with either model so I'm asking for all of your opinions. I am tempted to buy both and do a side by side comparison, then sell the lesser of the two, taking a small hit. I want to "buy once, cry once" and have heirloom quality glass. I have looked at the Swaro's and REALLY like them, but at over $1,000 more than the other two, I just can't justify it. I will also be replacing my current 10x42 binos with a pair of Swaro's.

The Zeiss is much better.
No need to go compare them side by side.

The Zeiss will also retain much more value in the future if you decide to sell it.

Thanks for the reply, timber buck. Which model(s) do you have personal experience with? I'm assuming you've played with both models I've inquired about and done a comprehensive comparison.
