Zeiss, known for their high end scopes is launching a new line of 50mm objective scopes. While I know that many are getting tired of objective lenses getting bigger, the 50mm tends to be a good compromise for hunters and shooters. It give enough light gathering to see in low light situations, or even at night with lights but isn’t so big that it is ridiculous. With a retail price of just $349, these scopes are sure to make a splash with shooters and sportsman alike for good high end glass at an affordable price.

NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA. – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance sports optics, is expanding its award-winning TERRA 3X riflescope line with four 50mm low-light models: the 3-9×50 Z-PLEX, the 3-9×50 RZ6, the 4-12×50 Z-PLEX and the 4-12×50 RZ8.
ZEISS TERRA 3X riflescopes outperform many other well-known brands by featuring best-in-class image quality, comfortable ergonomics and durable construction. With a retail price starting at just $349, these riflescopes pack a powerful, uncompromising punch into a lightweight, yet extremely rugged, compact one-inch design.
All TERRA 3X feature proprietary ZEISS MC anti-reflective coatings and 1/4-MOA adjustments. Based on its high performance and value, TERRA 3X riflescopes received Petersen’s Hunting magazine’s 2014 Editor’s Choice Award.
Building on this success, the new TERRA 3X models add even more versatility to this line of riflescopes: Featuring a larger 50mm objective, these four new riflescopes are perfect for low light conditions and offering hunters an opportunity to extend their day of shootable light.
“With the tremendous success that the TERRA line has experienced,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, “it made perfect sense to expand this line with more high-performance models at incredibly competitive price points.
