I have a couple places who sell Leupold but no Conquest to compare too
I have both V-X3 4.5x14 40 and a conquest 4.5x14 44 IMO I prefer the Leupold for several reasons.
Without going into the weeds here first - there really nothing wrong either of them. I have looked through them side by side many many times the image is "too close to call" they are both real good.
The reasons I prefer are.
1 how compact & light Leupold is & a clean simple reticle.(plex)
2 accessory's that Leupold offers for their products.
3 ease of the dial system on the Leupold.
4 C/S of Leupold is out standing and fast(I have had dials sent to me in less than 3 days)
5 eye relief - now before the flame'n prematurely starts, the closest I have ever shot any big game animal is 150 some yards so, my scopes are always on the highest mag. My eye with the Leupold does not have to be set distance from the scope to see well enough to make a good shot. That being laying down in prone, kneeling, stooping, or standing were as my check weld can not always be the same in all hunting situations.
6 how the above 5 improves confidence in tough hunting situations.
7 $300 difference now was $200.
In more "eastern" areas might have a somewhat different opinion... dunno?
