Both brands are German and well known in world of optics. Both produce high-end versatile hunting rifle scopes. Both Leica Magnus 1.8-12x50 and Zeiss Victory V8 1.8-14x50 are designed for hunters. Leica and Zeiss are both made to be used on close and on even longer distances.
I have enjoyed your commentaries on the Leica 2.4×16 Magnus and the VM/zm zeiss mounting system I would like to purchase one of these Leica scopes but have been unable to find in the U.S. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Keep up the good work letting us know what's new and how it performs.
