In general Zeiss had produced or is producing the following lines of scopes:


Classic Diavari

Victory Diavari


VM and ZM mark their inner rail for mounting (this type of rail was first made by Docter according to them). On current models they mark the rail only with a letter M.


I have no clue about Z or MC on Zeiss scopes in Europe. Since 1976 they are making T* coatings on Diavari models here, however they did produced MC (multi coated) coatings for some other markets, probably US also.

All scopes made by Zeiss in the US have MC on them.  Zeiss has cancelled all of the Conquest line but the 3-9x50 on up.  From now on, they will only manufacture the 50mm scopes, 5 models (I think), marked MC in the US.  The other 2-7x42 through 3-12x42 Conquests will become cheaper (not really) 3 to 1 focal lengths Terra Models and will be made here in the US and marked MC, made in the US, as all MC scopes are.  Every other Conquest scope focal length will become a 5 to 1 zoom and will be made in Germany and marked T*,  Z point has to do with the reticle being 600, 800 or 1000 Rapid-Z reticles.  I have (2) Conquests and they are very good scopes.
 
The T* Conquests will be HD-5 (5 to 1 magnification) and Duralyte models made in Germany.  They start at $995 retail and go up from there, although their street price is lower.  The Victory Diavari VM which I own, is one of six model groups made under the Victory marque.  They are still the same as they have been for several years and will continue.  They retail for $2000 on up.
 
You can go to Zeiss web site for more detail.  All Zeiss scopes are good.  You have to decide what features and magnification that  you want and go from there.  For $2000+ dollars you get a nearly bullet proof scope with optical features that exceed most American hunters needs as we do not hunt at night as the Germans do.

Thanks for the excellent Zeiss update. I was confused about all the Zeiss name /designation changes.
