How does the #8 reticle compare to the Z-plex in low light on the 2.5-10X50 Victory Diavari.  The #8 is close to my price range but the Z-Plex isn't.

Bobby-
 
I reaaly like the #8, because as you get closer to the point of aim, there isn't, or to me it doesn't seem as cluttered as the Z-plex.
 
This is the Zplex.
 
 
 
This is the #8.
 
 
It may just be me, but I like the sharp lines of the #8.
 
How much did you want to send on your scope?
I think that Zeiss prices are very reasonable on this. $1499.95.

1500 is on the upper end of my range.  I want the best scope I can for the money, because it will probably be on the gun for years.  I was looking for something closer to a grand but when I saw the price of the Zeiss Victory with the #8, I have been working on the better half, trying to convince her that it was worth the extra 500. Big Grin

How far are you shooting?
 
I think this is greatr scope, and it would serve your very well for years to come.
 
Another option I would entertain is the Minox ZA5.  This is another great choice with superior glass quality as well. Wink
