I am down to 2 choices:
 
Leica ER 2.5-10x42
 
or
 
Zeiss Varipoint 2.5-10x42
 
Both have top glass and hyrophobic coating.  Is the illunimated reticle worth the extra $ on the Zeiss?  Aside from illumination, which is better all around?

I will add that this is primarily for east coast deer hunting, max range 300-400 yards.

Zeiss would be my bet, but I haven't handled a Leica yet.

I have Leica binos and couldn't be happier with the glass (wish the binos were about 10 ounces lighter, but that's just whining on my part.)

I don't see any glass beating Zeiss for low light and water shedding, I have the Diavari 3-12 and it is almost night vision. Almost.
