Help! Leica or Zeiss Microscope?

Perhaps you can help me with a personal dilemma; I'm about to purchase a 
microscope and I've boiled 
the choice down to either a Leica Galen III or a Carl Zeiss Standard 20.  
The Leica has more bells and 
whistles than the Zeiss, and for the setup I'm thinking of it's also about 
$1000 cheaper than the Zeiss.  I 
have not used either and am 500 miles from the closest demo unit.  In your 
personal opinion would I be 
better off, in the long-run, going with the Zeiss?  Is one more comfortable 
to use than the other in terms 
of fatigue?  How would YOU compare these two microscopes generally?
