First off, my limit is set at $1500 with eye piece. I have used a $100 burris for over a decade and want something better for the goat and sheep. I am really tired of hoofing it 2mi.in steep country to see that it is 7/8 or a nanny. I think that the 65mm objective is appropriate for my needs.
After some research, I have narrowed it down to the Zeiss Dialyt and the Kowa 664 (I think).
The Zeiss may have more resale value(?) and better 'armor'.
The Kowa has a 66mm objective with a 20-60x eye piece with fantastic reveiws. Yet costs a little more.
Any opinion is appreciated.
