Hensoldt's 3.5-26x56 is an impressive riflescope with a large magnification range in a very compact package making it perfect for both short and long range engagements on a wide array of rifles. The compact length (14.5") of this riflescope is particularly important when used in conjunction with forward mounted night vision or thermal devices required for military use.

An illuminated MRAD hash-mark reticle is standard and provides all the information needed without the clutter prevalent in many other reticles, but it's the enormous available adjustment range that puts the Hensoldt 3.5-26x56 in a league of its own.

With a double-turn elevation turret providing 18 mrad (180 0.1MRAD clicks) of adjustment per rotation for a total of 36 MRAD (126MOA) no target will be too far. To aid use in different climates and elevations, the turret stop allows the user to click 0.5MRAD below the zero point, a feature not available in lesser scopes. Optical excellence combined with absolute ruggedness is guaranteed, adding to the never before seen performance offered by this scope.

Sold my car, house, and personal belongings for this scope, and personally it was worth it I can see the cops from 7 miles away when they are about to arrest me for nudity, only downside is I spent all my money on the scope I have no rifle to mount it on

I have tried just about all the scopes. For ELR application, the Hensoldt ZF 3.5-26x56 takes the cake. In terms of clarity, it is the best scope on the market. In terms of specifications needed for ELR (elevation adjustment, zoom ratio and settings, turrets, etc.) it beats out the other top manufacturers. The only drawback is that I suspect it may not be as popular among US shooters due to the CW turrets as most US shooters use CCW turrets.

The scope of all scopes I have had S&B, Kahles, Steiner, Nightforce ... the whole lot. There are many great scopes out there but after using the Hensoldt for a while you can not see your self going back ! The clarity and functions are amazing. Recommended :)

So far, the overall best scope ever made in human history, you simply have to be blind to ignore the never seen clarity and rigidity.

I bought my Hensoldt 3.5-26x56 in 2015. The adjustments are precise and repeatable. RTZ has been flawless. This scope is second to none in clarity and resolution. I wish I had the means to purchase another one.

I’ve had a Hensoldt west German issue scope mounted on an HK psg-1 marksman rifle since 1986 and to this very day it’s amazing .

The Hensoldt ZF 3.5-26x56 scope is a phenomenal scope. It is every bit as good as an S&B PMii and in other ways better. This scope is mounted. on my Cadex Defense 6.5 Creedmoor. The clarity of the paper targets and metal are superb. This scope was purchased at Eurooptic.

By far one of the best I’ve used. I’m comparing this to a couple SB, Kahles, and Tangent Theta. 36mm tube makes a difference. Price is hard to swallow until you use it on a precision riffle. Return to zero is perfect.
