Pros
  • Sharp at centre, excellent contrast, natural colour.
Cons
  • Occasional half moon reflection in eyepiece.
This lovely little Zeiss is easy to overlook as most will make a beeline for the Victory, however the Conquest is worthy of attention, could this be all the binocular any of us really needs ? Used outdoors for actual birding I simply forget them, which is probably the highest compliment I can give them. Extraordinarily good.

Pros
  • Very light, focus wheel not stiff,brilliant for the price
Cons
  • None after 12 months use.
Upgraded to the Zeiss about a year ago, from my old opticron 10x40's.Zeiss are lighter, brighter and much sharper focus with (for me) no apparent downside. Paid 349 at Cley Spy.

Pros
  • Razor sharp, bright image and light weight.
Cons
  • 1) Stiff focus knob with too much sticktion 2)close focus a bit long
I am a stickler for precise focus, but even focusing with 2 fingers on the knob, I have trouble getting it. The image is in focus but with some painful tweaking it could be sharper. I intend to see if Zeiss can fix this apparent common problem. If so I will change my opinion.
