The Zeiss Conquest HD line is in my opinion near alpha quality. Other popular binoculars in the normal price range are the Leica Trinovid and the Vortex Razor. For my preferences, the Conquest is the better binocular compared to the Trinovid. I haven't had enough experience with the Razor to have a strong opinion but my initial impression is it is not better optically, but does have an exceptional wide FOV. The Razor sells for $1,200. One other I would consider (but have not seen) is the new Tract Toric at $664 (no case), but they are out of stock until at least March of next year. A quality binocular such as the Zeiss Conquest 10X42 for $669.99 is an exceptional deal.

Most of the comments on the forum say the Conquest line has excellent optics and they seem to be very well built. The biggest complaint has been about the eye cups, which some have said were a little short in relation to the eye relief. This is mainly mentioned in relation to the 8X42. Zeiss offers a free replacement eye cup that is slightly longer for those that desire it.
