Both my HT and Victory Pocket have reddish objective coatings, less blue purple than my Victory FL, but both seem completely colour neutral….the SF series must be quite different as they seem much warmer in comparison.
I’d like to know that too as it is implied that the origin label is dishonest and unethical, possibly fraudulent.
If the Conquests really are made in Japan then Zeiss is fraudulently using the “made in Germany” label to sell product upmarket.
Dump unnaturally large amounts of garbage and poison in the soil and air and eventually you have to pay the piper. We are stripping this world bare, little by little…we are too many, too greedy and too selfish. Wild swings in temperatures and storms are the direct result of degraded ecosystems...
I’ve said it a few times…this is a 30 year old design. Considering what Zeiss was able to do back then, just think what a modern version could be…..smaller, lighter, better glass and coatings, better eyepieces etc.etc
Case meaning casing I’d assume…and I’d opine most buyers wouldn’t have a clue as to the construction…and if they did I’m sure glass fibre reinforced polymer would be well received as it sounds suitably exotic for a pricey item..rather than boring old metals lol.
It’s needs to be an all in one…binocular with optical zoom to 25x, image stabilized, photo / video capable.
Needs to replace scope, tripod, camera and large lens….would be a replacement for everything we are forced to carry now and I’d pay thousands.
Maybe the assumption is that most buyers are optically savvy when it comes to binoculars. I would say this is definitely not the case, more like maybe 5% really know anything about what they’re using. When it comes to rolling ball or some other optical aberration most users would be completely...
