Purchased Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42 binoculars

Posted Tuesday 5th February 2013 at 13:53 by MrBitsy
Had the Hakes for a month and was really enjoying the view from them. I went to Titchwell Marsh RSPB and decided to review the binoculars in the shop to see how much I would need to spend to beat the Hawkes.

I tried many models up to the top end Swarovski. I personally saw no improvement until I tried the Zeiss Conquest 8x42 HD. Contrast, Brightness, colours and resolution were all improved. The Swarovski were nicer still, but not 1000 nicer!

Have you been using the Hawkes Frontier 8x43? Been humming and haaing. Off to try some tomorrow and would appreciate some feedback.

There's a big price difference
