I have not seen all of them however they all sound like a very good choice to me so no matter which of them you select Im sure you will be OK. My personal preference would be Zeiss but Swarovski is good glass they make a Z5 3.5-18x44 that I would very much like to own.
Note:  SWFA will not ship outside the U.S. due to customs regs.

I have time with all of them
In all honesty they are all very, very close

I would say pick the one with the features you want most and you will be happy.

The optics of the Swarovski would win this for me, and the BT feature is easy to use and just works. Swarovski all the way.

I've only spent time with the Swaro 3-10 and Leupy VX-6. Optically they are close, I might give the edge to the Leupold.  I like the CDS of the VX-6 and the Swaro 3-10 doesn't have a BT. Magnification range of 2-12 vs 3-10 no brainer who to go with.  Size and weight to the Swaro, it's very obvious when you put them side by side and pick them up.  That is the only real reason to go with the Swaro over the Leupy.

I don't own the ones talked about but I do own many Leupolds (not any above VX3), besides CS, ruggedness via hunter and military, over 800 american employees, great warranty, etc, they have the most reticle options, custom shop, and if you don't like the reticle later down the road, you may be able to have it changed for a lot less money vs a new scope.

PS: of coarse, I live in the USA.

I do have the newer VX3, 30 mm 4.5-14x50 with CDS and love it for quick spin of the dial at known ranges and it's more accurate than I am (holding true). It also exceeds my eyes, I was in my stand looking around waiting for it to break legal light and could not see my feeder and decided to look through my scope; and there where two doe and an Axis spike at the feeder which I could not see without the scope.
