    I am curious if anyone has personal experience with this scope.  I am looking for a quality scope to mount on my .22 Daystate Huntsman Revere.  I am trying to find a second focal plane scope with excellent glass and not too heavy.  This scope is listed as 21 oz. and I really don't want to go any  heavier.  My primary use will be for squirrel hunting in the deep (and often dark) woods of the Missouri Ozarks.  I generally still hunt and hike deep into the National Forest and Wilderness Areas so weight is important to me.  Rarely do I take a shot over 50 yards.  Most shots are in the range of 20 to 40 yards and between 6 and 10 magnification power.  I do like to have a little extra magnification when plinking or doing a little pesting.

    The other scope that I am looking at is the vortex 3-15×42 Razor HD LHT.  Any opinions or comments would be appreciated.

     

    A couple items worth mentioning is that the Zeiss specs state that it will focus to 10 yards and the Vortex to 20 yards.  When shooting at 6-8 magnification I believe that the Vortex would be sharp at 15 yards or less.   Thanks for any input or other recommendations.

    No experience with the Zeiss, but a friend has the Vortex.  It is really good glass.

    If i remember correctly, he said it could "focus" down to 10 yards no problem.   The quotes are while not perfect, the glass quality is so good it looks perfectly clear.

    The illumination is just the center dot, not the entire reticle tree.  So in really dark or night time scenarios, the reticle won't wash out the entire view.

    It's probably going to be my next scope..since I can't afford the March Compact.

    If illumination isn't important, the Optisan 3-12x32CP MH10 is nice glass at an affordable price…it's what I have on my Lelya.  Approximstely 10" and 17 oz.  Got mine at Trenier Outdoors.

    I had a Zeiss conquest on a hunting rifle. It did not have a parallax adjustment, but it was really a beautiful scope and glass. I no longer have the scope because I don't have the rifle, sold as a package, but I would definitely own one again for a powder burner. I wouldn't get one for my airguns thought only because the fix parallax at 100 yards, especially if you rarely shoot past 50y. You definitely need a 10y parallax. Good news is Discovery VT-3 has everything you are looking for in a nice compact package. Good magnification for those fine tune shots at 50, light scope, good parallax to10y and glass that will do great for that distance. I have several and every time I look through it I wonder why I keep spending $800 on other scopes. At least check them out and check resources here and you will be glad you did. $225 shipped is a STEAL for this scope for your shooting needs.

    Every Vortex I have seen has a parallax down to 20y, could be wrong. My Viper PST Gen2 is 20y. It's never been a problem, but I do prefer 10y.

    AFAIK, there is only 1 model of the Conquest that has a 10-yard to infinity capability: V4 4-16×50, ZMOAi-1 (#93).

    Yes I have one and the 6-24 model, the is NO BRIGHTER image on the market full stop at this price range! the VORTEX doesn't even come close!

    You are correct the CONQUEST is also extremely light, but beware as above make sure to specify 10 YDS PX as they also come in a 50 YD PX version.

    Only slight criticism of the ZEISS I can offer is no flip up caps!

    Both Scopelist and Euro Optic has this unit in stock.  Looks like a great choice!

    Thanks to everyone for their comments and input. Just to be clear, the Zeiss scope listed in my subject line has 10 yard focus as stated in their specs.  I believe that this is a relatively new update to the Conquest V4 line of scopes.

    I went through every conquest v4 on scope list and they all say 50y parallax or 100y fixed. If there is one that is 10y I would call and make absolutely sure before paying. 
     

    Don’t forget to make an offer of 20% off on scopelist. You will get at least $100 off if you do. Pay with Zelle and get an additional 2%.

    camera land will also knock about 9% off if you’re military or first responder if you call them.

    Yes, give them a call to be sure.

    I am positive this is the only model with a 10-yard to infinity parallax.

    The Zeiss Conquest is an extremely bright scope. So much so It could get you in trouble with late hunting.

    wonderful glass at its pricepoint.

    There are several available with the 10yrd px. I have one and it’s brilliant. Crystal clear and bright. Good eyebox and lightweight.

    Thanks for the link!  I scrolled through some of their other models.  Looks like the new versions all have 10 yd focus.  Bonus!

    Great glass, nice illuminated reticle, 2fp and 10yd minimum focus. This thing checks most of the boxes for a HFT scope. Anyone use this scope in HFT(US).          Uj

    To clarify a bit more regarding this scope, I contacted Zeiss USA to find out what models were available with the 10 yard parallax.  At the present time only the 4x16x50 is available as you stated.  However, they did say that two new models were going to be announced.  I am fairly certain that the 4-16×44 is available in the UK as it was reviewed on the airgun channel.  Link below.  Ken

    The Zeis is about the best you are going to get for that money without going to very debatable Chinese glass or paying a lot more.  

    Why not just cut your out of pocket in half and get an older Leupold 6.5-20×40 EFR or equivalent Sightron or Weaver Grand Slam etc off the bay or one of the gun sites?  You can get a 40mm or 42mm objective, parallax down to 10yds, Japanese glass, lighter weight, more compact, lower profile etc.  I would avoid anything 30mm or objective over 42mm.  

    I live in the Ozarks and have the Regal XL which is almost same gun.  That gun is one of the most compact and lightest conventional PCP's out there.  When I put something on there 30mm, large objective, giant knobs, side focus etc it looks and feels like a log especially for tree squirrel hunting. 

    Be careful in choosing a reticle.  Those Ozark trees just will eat up anything thin.  I only saw two reticles on the Zeis I would even consider.  All those tacticool rangefinding skinny cluttered reticles will disappear in the trees.

    Thanks for your input!  I definitely would like to keep the weight and size down as much as possible.
