As the title states curious to see if anyone has been able to compare or have had experience with either the zeiss conquest gavia 85 and the swarovski ats 65 hd, the reason I'm comparing these two instead of the zeiss and the swaro 80 HD is that the zeiss and the ats 65 HD are very similar in price

I've owned the Gavia 85 and an ATS 65, no contest, the ATS 65 HD is a much better scope. The Gavia carried the name but felt more like a Razor HD in the field. The Gavia's inability to resolve with higher powers is very apparent.

Bummer that Zeiss missed the mark with the Gaiva.

Didn't end up upgrading my spotter this year but when I do I'm probably going with a swaro

This X2. I had read somewhere the gavia was essentially a razor wrapped in black. I wasn't impressed for the price. The s series will serve you better.
