I just purchased a 6.5 CM and want to mount some nice glass on it. I was looking hard at the Swarovski Z3 or Z5 and then stumbled on the Zeiss Conquest HD 5 on Cabela's site. They have the 3-15 x 42 on sale for $699.

This will primarily be a hunting rifle. Any thoughts on the Zeiss compared to the Swarovski?

I don't own a Swaro and their glass quality sets the bar from everything I read. I do have a Zeiss HD5 5-25 and it is by far my favorite scope. I think you will be very happy especially for the price.

Great glass for sure. I have a Conquest 4.5-14x50 on a 30-06. I would put the Z3 along with the Conquest and the Z5 along with the HD5.

I'd go with Swarovski. I have 7 of the original Conquests and they are awesome scopes. So I bought a ZeissHD 5-25x50 last year and compared to the original conquest it was a real disappointment! The glass isn't as good and the mechanics are pretty poor as well. I won't buy another one. I'm sure their more expensive scopes are still awesome but if I were you I'd buy a swaro over a zeiss.

X2 I love my HD5. Just a heads up the cheapest price I have found was at camerland NY. They are sponsors here and will beat any price. When you call ask for Neil or Doug.

I have a conquest 5-25 and love it. I also purchased it on Cabela's and if I see it on sale again, I will buy another one.

Swarovski is by far the better scope! There's a reason they are selling these scopes heavily discounted...

By the way give Camera Land NY a try. That’s where I purchased mine. They will beat most anyone’s price. Ask for Neil or Doug and tell them you heard about them on the THF.
