That goes for the "better" Zeiss Victory and Leica Ultravid. In the end I went for the Leica Trinovid 8x20, they are a tad fatter than the Conquests but the eyecups are better at swapping between my wife and I.
Googling about, the trinovids don't seem to be available in the US - only German links. Thanks for the thoughts though!
