Well I received this info. I hope it is correct.

One of the BEST line of riflescopes ever made! FFP reticle. The first ZA scopes (around 1978/79) were not T* (fully multicoated with the propietary Zeiss way) and not glass reticle. The last ones of the T* models (first years of 1990 decade) have glass reticles. They came in 1,5-6x42 and 2,5-10x52 in the variables (Diavari), with tube diameter of 30 mm with or without rail, and 4x32, 6x42 and 8x56 in the fixed series (Diatal) with 26 mm tubes.

Pretty sure it is an etched reticle.  Also pretty sure it is 2nd Focal Plane.  Almost any scope that has a first focal plane reticle has that information plastered all over their info about it. The primary reason one would want a First Focal Plane reticle would be with a mil dot based range finding reticle so that it could be used on any power.  For a hunting scope with a #4 reticle a  2nd focal plane reticle makes more sense also at 2.5 x the reticle would barely be visable if it was FFP so really makes sense that it would be  2nd focal plane.
