Both scopes are great but also very different.
Schmidt & Bender 2.5-13x56 Stratoshttps://www.optics-trade.eu/en/schmidt- ... ratos.html
The main difference is that S&B has a reticle and flashdot in first focal plane (FFP). This is one of the best European premium rifle scopes with reticle in FFP. It's more robust and has a slightly larger field of view. The biggest advantage is a 5x zoom factor.
Zeiss Victory HT 3-12x56https://www.optics-trade.eu/en/riflesco ... 12x56.html
Victory HT has a slightly higher light transmission and a really small and fine adjustable red dot. Disadvantage in comparison with Stratos is a 4x zoom factor and the sharpness at the edges. It's not so sharp as Stratos.
In case that you are looking for rifle scope just for evening/night hunting we would suggest the Victory HT. If you are looking for a more versatile rifle scope then we would advise choosing S&B Stratos of course in case if you are looking for rifle scope with reticle in first focal plane.
We hope that we helped you.
