Wow, what a decision to make.  I may be able to get a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x with Z-plex reticle for $450 (with BC flipups).

 

But I really like the XOTIC as well.

 

Problem is, there is a pretty huge difference in:

 

Price

 

Weight

 

Size

 

And, of course, features.

 

Yikes - what a decision!

That is a great price for the Zeiss, however I would go with a Corvette over a Chevette anyday.

What the XOTIC has to offer over the Conquest:

  • 30 mm tube
  • Mil dot reticle
  • First Focal plane reticle
  • Superior Glass
  • Stronger design
  • All in all a superior scope.
  • Custom power stop feature
  • Free Mil dot master with purchase
  • Free Sun Shade with purchase
  • 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee
  • Two year direct-replacement warranty
  • After two years the scope will have a Full Lifetime warranty

 

The Zeiss is a steal at $450. May be worth getting just on that fact. What type shooting/hunting do you plan on doing? If it's strictly hunting with a little bit of target shooting then jump on that Zeiss. If you are mostly a target shooter. Than the XOTIC would be worth the investment. Yes the scope is very large. It has to be big for what it is offering. It's really a scope for a serious shooter that can exploit all of it's capabilities.

Well, I got the Zeiss - I just couldn't pass up that price - wow!

 

BUT I will be saving my pennies for the XOTIC - I am very impressed with what I have seen, heard, read, etc. and I think it would make a great scope for long range target shooting.

 

Mostly target shooting at under 500 yards, but if/when I start moving out past that I am sure I will want the XOTIC.
