          Brilliant

          By Ian

          from Port Macquarie

          Comments about Zeiss Conquest 8x42 HD Binocular:

          Brilliantly clear in low light situations. Very solid feel to all moving parts giving confidence in the build quality. The focus requires little movement to go from close up to infinity, but can easily be fine tuned. They provide a complete field of view when wearing spectacles. There was no signs of black when the eye caps were extended for viewing without spectacles as detailed by another reviewer. I think they didn't extend to the third click stop. The lens caps are great. Perfect! For birding.

            Very happy with the new binoculars. They are so much better than my previous mid-range pair (which were also very good). Couldn't be happier.

              Comments about Zeiss Conquest 8x42 HD Binocular:

              Just received as upgrade to Steiner Perigrine (8 years old). I use for birding and find these to be exceptionally clear image. At close focus, feathers don't appear smooth but rather "furry". In low light (twilight), these are remarkable. UPS delivered just at sundown and I unpacked and went outside. I kept looking as birds began to roost for the night. I guess night-vision goggles would be better, but these are pretty good. I studied specs. and ratings before I purchased and do understand them but have no way of assigning values but would say that I am thrilled with my purchase. Not inexpensive but well worth the price.

              Comments about Zeiss Conquest 8x42 HD Binocular:

              Optically, these guys are SHARP and quite bright. In low light these things really shine, and are absolutely worth the money. That said, there are a few caveats.Against bright backlighting you will get some green/magenta fringing. I was a little suprised by how much - more than my old $ Pentax pair. There is also a small amount of softness at the extreme corners but I don't see how this could really affect their use.These binoculars are reasonably heavy. The official specs say 750g. My digital kitchen scales say 812g.Note that eye cups have three distinct 'clicks' of eye relief, and can provide a bit of resistance to get to the second and third stops. For the first few days I thought they were limited to the first, so I found them a bit uncomfortable (I don't wear glasses). I still don't find them 100% comfortable and ocasionally get some blacking out while looking through them.All that said, I'd still recommend them whole-heartedly. In terms of sharpness and brightness they are excellent.
