Getting ready to re-scope a 6BR squirrel/bench gun. Want Zeiss Conquest...just not sure if the HD5 is worth the extra $200-$250. I do like the 5-25x over the 6.5x20x, but I'm wondering if there is a clarity/optics advantage too? There's supposed to be better coatinigs, right?
 
Has anyone been able to discern a difference in the optical quality between the two?
 
Thanks!

Just having the varible power rating be minimum less than 6.5 would be enough for me.

I just bought the new HD and I can not really speak to the clarity difference. I do like the wider range of zoom and the optics are great, but they may not be better than the regular conquest. I am not sure if they are going to continue their normal conquest line so that could make some difference.

Yeah, I do like the idea of wider range of zoom...
