I have not seen one yet. I'll be interested in your take as well. Regardless of all the hype I'd probably buy a VX2 instead.

I should have a 2-7x32 Terra tomorrow to compare to my last run 2.5-8x32 Conquest. Thanks for going on vacation Doug, and don't forget to bring your guys some salmon or halibut or something.

Midway has a $100 rebate going on now for select Zeiss scopes, including the Terra 3X9.

Zeiss has a $20 rebate on Terra scopes. Larger amount on ones outside my pay grade.

Terra may be to zeiss what rifleman is to Leupold , a way most anyones budget can afford one of the high end brands and these people don't have clue what optics quilty is , let alone believe tat bushnell , burris and many others make as good or better scopes at these lower price points

Perhaps, but I find the reticle on my 2.5-8x32 Conquest visible about 5 minutes longer than my 3.5-10x40 VX-III Leupold.

$299 from Midway is a great price to find out how it stacks up against a new VX-2.

If I was looking for a scope I would do the midway rebate just to test one out. I have looked at a 3-9 at a store and it looked fine but hard to tell anything inside the store.

It's also impossible to tell how they'll hold up over time, until that time is up, know what I mean? I'll take a proven commodity...VX2, Elite 4200, etc.
