Not true. The 3-12x56 was 30mm.

That's also false as Zeiss scopes carry full and transferable warranties and will either be repaired or replaced. I recently bought a new-old-stock Conquest 3-12x56 that only had 44 clicks of windage. Since it was no longer a production item, they upgraded me to a new Conquest DL 3-12x50 with #60 (illuminated) reticle, quite the upgrade as that's a $1400 scope. And when the band on the lens covers of my 20-year-old scope separated from the cover itself, they sent me a new set. A few years ago, a friend of mine chipped the objective glass in his 4.5-14x44 when he went down a shale slide. His elevation turret was also badly scuffed. His scope still functioned perfectly, but after the hunt, he sent it in for a thorough check-up. Two weeks later, he received a fully-refurbished scope -- complete with new objective lens -- for no charge. I'd say that's pretty good customer service.
