good lord all mighty. I couldn't see spending that much on anything? maybe a gun + a scope + box of shells LOL. I bought a cheap 50 dollar Scope 5 years ago for my 7mm and its still works like a charm today.
lol!!!!!!!!! I love my $50 10-point scope!!!!!!!!!

What are you using it for? With that quality of scope you will not need the 50 mm objective, a 40 will be fine unless you want really high power. If you are deer hunting I say get a simple 3-9x40 something with no AO or side focus. Spend the extra money on better glass. Ziess would be my choice if I had the money. The Alaskan guide scopes by cabela's are pretty nice as well, not Zies nice in my opinion though.

Good luck and let us know what you get.

Save your money and go with a Burris 3x9 fullfield. I love it and haven't had a problem with getting bumped off or fogging and bring the early or late hours shooting light into the scope. It runs around 200 dollars.

800 bucks sounds a little bit much. I would go for 400 and get two and then send me the second one!!! lol. sorry, Idont know much about good optics. I would have to miss two house payments for a scope like that!

Ziess is hard to beat but about half the money Leupold is a option to.

I agree with the Zeiss Conquest sentiment. Also, would definately check ebay. I saw some decent deals there lately for NIB models.

Good luck...
