Hello everybody,  want to discuss with you the qualities of each of these scopes, which are some of the best mid price and more popular scopes around...
I plan to set up a new deer rifle and want to choose any of these scopes in 50mm Objective and  12X  power....
I have the idea that the swaro AV is the top one followed by zeiss and leupold both in second place but don't really know the real qualities of each and would like to hear how do you compare them...

Thanks for your comments

I've heard good things about the VX-3s but not used one.  I have used (and own) Conquest and Swaro AV and, you are correct, the Swaro is the best glass of the 3.  My experiences with Conquest have been very positive.

What rifle and caliber?  If it is a deer rifle, I assume low-light capabilities are important.

Let us know what you want, what you need, what it is going on, and we can help narrow the field of best options.

I've come to the same conclusion as R/C, the swaro does have the best glass, but the leo and zeiss are not that far behind.  Money being no object, I'll take the swaro, if its a heavy kicker I'll take the leo.  Really all three of these scopes are top notch and all of them should provide all the optics you need.  I guess it boils down to $$ and personal preference.

I have the same dilema. I was thinking more along the lines of the Leupold 3.5x10 or the Swarovski 3x10.
That's very attractive pricing on the Swarovski, on the other hand the Leupold is still about 2/3 of the money.
Would be going on my .300wsm.

The Swarovski AV's are on sale in some venues presently and represent a good deal costwise.  I have a Swar. AV, 4-12x50, plus a Zeiss Conquest and am greatly impressed with it, certainly vis a vis Leupold VX's.
