Between the entry-level Diafun and the premium Classic & Victory series of binoculars now lies Zeiss's newest line, Conquest. Conquests have all of the typical Zeiss accoutrements, including the T* multicoatings and the phase corrected roof prisms. They're lightweight, marvelously handling daylight binoculars with a broader focusing range and improved brightness than the Diafun series.
The 8x50 T* Conquest is a particular star, offering a clear and bright view for bird watching, without too great a weight. Nonetheless, as a rule it is true that high-powered binoculars are difficult to hold steady by hand; a monopod (and a tripod adapter if not included with the binocular) with an incorporated fluid pan/tilt head or with such a head attached between the monopod and the binocular is highly recommended.
