Was wondering if the Z3 and Z5 are the same glass, much like the Leupold VX-5HD and VX-6HD are the same glass? But the VX-6HD has more features than the VX-5HD...aluminum lens covers, internal digital level, etc., and 6x zoom vs 5x zoom. Also, the Z5 has 5x zoom vs 3x zoom of the Z3...not a big factor to me. I once had a Z3 4-12x 50 that I really liked, and I am considering one of these, a Z5, or another Leupold VX-5HD for my new X Bolt White Gold Medallion.

Swarovskioptik would know for sure and they’d get back to you quickly if you email them. I’d venture to say the glass is phenomenal in either case… my Z5 is. You won’t be disappointed with either one.
