Any word on the street how these are going to stack up against others in their price range. Like the 2-10X42  vs Swaro Z3 3-10X42

Bobby they are very nice, but I would not say that they are right on par with Swarovski.
 
I would put them closer to Leupold's VX-3 or Nikon's Monarch 3 optically.

Thanks, I still haven't pulled the plug on upgrading my 30-06 scope.  Looks like I'm still leaning toward the Swaro Z3.

You'll love the Z3 from Swarovski.
 
Absolutely a fantastic scope.

Z3 is a great scope and my brother runs one on his 25-06

I want to so an A/B lowlight test comparison between it and the HD5

One thing I like to so is get my 16 year old son to compare in low low light.
His eyes are much younger than mine so it is a good excercise.

+1. A few years ago I put a Swaro 3-9 x 36 on my wife's Ruger compact. Now, every time she sees / hears me messing with the guns,  she comes running ... and tells me not to mess with her scope!!! LOL.

I have the HD5 3-15
Mr brother has a z3
It will probably be a month before we can get together for me to do a direct A/B comparison.
