I'm about to spend some nice bucks on optics and would like to hear some opinions. 
I'm changing my Zeiss Duralyt 3-12X50 Non-Illum for a Zeiss Victory HT 2.5-10X50 #60  for deer hunting, and for my coyote rifle I'm buying a Zeiss Victory 3-12X56 #4 with railmount. The price difference is quite big, so I'm not sure if the HT line really outperform the standard victory by that much.

Victory HT has better glass (the best for low light at the moment), better illumination point and better ASV system then any other Victory before. It is also SFP scope and for hunting this can be helpful for some people.

I just sighted the HT and all I can say is "WOW". The glass is the best you can get for low light. I was shooting just before dusk and the light gathering is awesome. I could see the targets @400yds perfectly. It was impossible to see them with a naked eye. Earlier in the afternoon the images were crystal clear. Awesome scope, just a little pricey.
I wasn't able to mount the Diavari because the mounting system the sold me isn't for this scope. Just ordered a new one. Hope this time it fits. I'm regretting I chose the scope with the railmount. I thought it would be easier to get the mounts.

Railmount is probably the best solution for mounting but in the US it is probably really hard to get the proper rings. However here in EU this is much easier.


Congratulations on a great scope. ;)

How did you like the duralyt?  I have the german made 3-12x50 duralyt and a victory diavari 3-12x56(not the new HT) and IMO opinion they are very close in all aspects.  I am cosidering selling my Victory and buying the new HT.  Your feedback isappreciated!

IMO the duralyt sí nowhere close to the Victory. The lack of T* coatíng is very notorious. Trying to hunt in low light conditions gave me a really hard time. I bought a 2.5-10X50 Victory HT to replace the duralyt, and since I bought twice a pair of "railmount" mounts with no succes, I got rid of the Victory and bought a 5-25X50 conquest HD-5. I tested one side by side with a Victory and optics are almost the same, and you get a lot of nice features on the HD-5.
Lets see how the HD-5 performs. Some folks are complaining about the zerostop. But the 18 MOA vertical adjustment allowed by the zerostop should get me to around 800 yd. Pretty decent for my .243 win.
I already tried the Victory HT and it has the best glass I ever looked trough. With that glass Zeiss really "makes it visible"

I took some time yesterday and compared Duralyt 3-12X50 and Victory HT 2.5-10x50 in day time and in low light.



I think that difference is huge and HT is really a big leap forward in quality. FOV is bigger, picture is much brighter and much sharper. I would strongly recommend HT over Duralyt. The only thing that was slightly better on Duralyt is the lowest setting of illuminated point which is lower than on HT. In fact the illumination on Duralyt goes to 0 and on HT it stops at one point and can not be lowered any more. On the highest levels they are both day time usable, however the HT point is smaller, brighter and doesn't "bleed" as much.   



At the same time I also added Docter Klassik 2.5-10x48 to the comparison and have to say that optically it is better than Duralyt (in all respects) and also build better. Since at the moment I have no illuminated version of this scope I can not comment about the differences in illumination system.

Well, since the HT scope costs about twice as much as the Duralyt, I'd say it makes perfect sense that it's (much) better...

Nice scopes BTW Smile.

Docter costs the same as Duralyt and it is also a better scope. Wink
