I had a 10X and found it was to much power. I did a match with movers from 50 yds to 250 yds. there was a second stage with target exposed for a curtain amount of time. Same distances. 10 Power was way to much by the time I had sight picture and squeeze target was gone. Field of view was the problem. I changed out to a 6X and it made a huge difference. I have had one on my main match M1A/M14 rifle since 96. I have used it in matches from zero to 1000 yds. It has never let me down but just moved it over to another M1A/M14. I replaced it with the new Leupold 1-8 MK8. But the scope still going strong. Easy to use and tough, I have been dragging my scope through the dirt since 96 and I can only hope the Leupold holds up the same. As stated above if you have a line to a ZF95 for $500 I want one and would love it if you steered me in the direction to getting it. I have a rifle platform that's in need of itI'm looking at 10x 84 and 95 models budget 500 bucks found a couple already. Most people seem to really like them I am just hesitant about buying such an older scope. My photonic 6x (like a ZF) was neat until it tanked, no longer works and can't get parts either. The loopy M3 I have is far from perfect, glass quality is like my PST and it's already broken once. But I know if it tanks again it'll just get fixed again too.
How long have you owned/used it and on what rifles?
here is what I use.I too like the kahles scopes having once had a zf69 on a steyr ssg. I bought a new zf84,10x to mount on my m25. I have not found the rings for this set-up yet. I have not yet located ring inserts to adapt it to 30mm or any other configuration. If anyone has the answers please let me know. I hope you didn't mind this inquiry. Thanks.
