Kicking around getting a new scope for my custom Husky 06 and I'm wondering if and of you have had both to compare. Reticle "boldness" for low light very important and I'd be looking at the Z-Plex in the HD5 and whatever plex is offered in the Meopta ( might be the same one in fact). Both have enough ER according to the specs for me, weight also, Zeiss has Lotu-Tec (big plus for me). Not interested in lit reticles like the new Meopro RD has. Don't care about the price diff either. I'm interested in the(Zeiss)HD5 2-10x42 vs the (Meopta)3.5-10x44

I went to Gander Mountain the other day because they had a few HD5's in stock.  The 2-10 is a nice package, better than I had thought it would be.  It had a plex reticle.  I thought it was something I would like to have on a pure hunting rifle.  I'm not crazy about scopes with 3.5x on the low end… I don't much care for variables with 4x on the low end.  I've not seen the Meopta, but just never had an interest in that particular range of magnification.  2-10 is great for a 30-06, I think.  
The HD5 is typical Zeiss quality, it has a nice feel, looks good… no input on the Meopta.  
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

For anyone who owns a Zeiss HD5 either the 2-10 or 3-15, how does it compare to other high end scopes and it's low light performance in particular ?
