Bushnell. I love the Rainguard. Zeiss has an etched glass reticle which is nice too, but it's a heavy scope. I've owned both and now have two Elite 4200s. The Rainguard is great on cold days when you breath on your scope by mistake. It doesn't fog over. You can get the 3-9x40 Elite 4200 for less than $300. I prefer the 1.5-6x36 for TN.
