Of what you've mentioned I would go for the Zeiss. I would however opt for the 4.5-14X50 Zeiss with the side focus.

I would also be considering: Meopta (great glass at a good price), Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16X50.

Any of the scopes you've mentioned are going to be hard to beat and you've been given very good advice already. Go to a store, get the scopes you are considering and look through all of them!

Most will say Zeiss, but I am Leupold faithful.

I have both the Zeiss and Leupold. Zeiss is defintely the clearest and brightest. However it is heavier and longer. Something to consider is you are going to walking along way. The length of the Zeiss causes the bolt on my Rem 700 to just barely clear it.

Dern you folk's hide. All this talk and then I go in Legend's here in Athens and they've got all optics 25% off. Yeah, I did it. I walked out with a 4.5-14x44 Zeiss Conquest. I couldn't resist the price of $517. If I was ever going to buy one this was the opportunity. I've already mounted it on my 25-06 and boresighted it. Clarity and resolution looked to be great right at dusk tonight. This is my first Zeiss. It's all you folk's fault. Thanks.

You won't be disappointed. I used to be a Leupold man until I looked thru the Zeiss. Now all my bolt rifles wear the Zeiss Conquest.
