Thought I would share an observation of mine. I shot a couple of my guns yesterday, one has a leupold VXIII and the other has a Zeiss conquest, both scopes are priced about the same. There is no comparison in clarity as the zeiss is that much better, hands down. I never really noticed the difference until yesterday because I had not shot them side by side before. The zeiss is my first one, and if I need another scope, it will most likely be a zeiss.
