I checked out the Dynafit ZZeus today and it was pretty impressive, if pricey ($749). But as usual with AT boots, it's a trade-off. The ZZeus was clearly designed for the on-piste AT crowd, as the overlap cuff makes it very downhill oriented, but increases the weight over my ZZeros. I really like the ability to switch out between mountaineering/Vibram-like soles versus skiing soles, and I really like the ability to replace the soles when I trash them rock-climbing. If they could make the ZZeus a bit lighter, they'd have an AT boot that nothing else could touch. Oh, and the fact that my dog is named 'Zeus' doesn't hurt either.
