I am trying to get a handle on where the Zeiss Terra lines fits in with Leupold and Nikon.  I know a lot of people have been very unimpressed with the Terra line of riflescopes, so I just trying to figure out where it fits into the whole picture of comparably priced riflescopes.  Would the Zeiss Terra 3-9x42 be better, equal, or worse than the Leupold VX-2 3-9x40? Also, is the Zeiss Terra better, equal, or worse than the Nikon Monarch 2-10x42? Thanks for any comments back.

You have to keep these comparisons in their proper perspective.  The Zeiss Terra is and should be compared to the Zeiss Conquest.  This is where the bad reviews come from.  The Conquest on it worst day is better than the Terra.  I do not have a Terra nor a Nikon to compare to.  The Zeiss VX3 is a better scope IMHO than the Terra.

Did you mean the VX3 or the VX2?

I compared the Zeiss Terra to the Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x42 and the Monarch was better.

I had three scopes side by side: Conquest, Terra and Monarch.  Conquest was a bit better than the Monarch and both were better than the Terra.
