The Conquest 10x42 HD Binocular from ZEISS has a higher magnification that allows concentrating on a more focused subject for greater detail. The golden-mean objective size provides sufficient light gathering ability for the twilight zones of dust and dawn without the added bulk of an oversized objective. Watersports and rainy days won't leave this item in the car or backpack. It is waterproof to 13' and nitrogen filled to provide fogproofing and inhibit any condensation build-up.

ZEISS high quality optics plays a major role in the superiority of this binocular. Multi-layer coating reduces light loss and glare due to reflection offering a brighter, higher-contrasted image and light transmission of up to 90%. HD (High Definition) glass reduces the chromatic aberration that appears as unwanted "fringes" of color between dark and bright parts of an image. The LotuTec coating protects the lenses from dust and water. Rain just slides right off the exposed glass.

A large center focusing knob is easily accessible in all kinds of weather. The twist-up eyecups feature is a comfort for eye and sunglass wearers and the dioptric adjustment ring allows for individual eye differences. The close focus of an up-front 6.6'/2m means being able to catch the detail in that fluttery butterfly's wing before it disappears into thin air.

AAoV of 66°
HD, high density lens system provides clear and neutral colors

Conquest 10x42 HD Binocular is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great build and feel. I use these while hiking the nature trails. The Zeiss build feels balanced and comfortable in your hands.The focus wheel is very smooth and the eye cups have several levels of adjustment. The lens caps for the exit pupils are great but the ones for the front objectives fall out easily as if Zeiss almost intends that you don't use them so I don't. The case that Zeiss provides is great and with the lens caps removed access is very quick and easy! Everyone I have handed these binoculars to have commented they would like a pair. I think the price for these is fair unlike some of the other brands out there charging two and almost three times as much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Value for the money! I use these binoculars for birding. They are exceptionally crisp and bright. The field is sharp from edge to edge. They cost only one-third of what you would expect to pay for the most expensive binoculars, and I doubt that anyone could find fault with the image when compared to the most expensive alternatives. I recommend these unequivocally for anyone who prefers 10 power binoculars over 8 power. I recommend also purchasing a pair of tethered lens covers for 42mm binoculars to use in the field. The supplied plug-in objective covers are too likely to fall out in use in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Since I have so many floaters in my left eye and my vision is 20/30 corrected, I decided to buy a 10x42 binocular--Carl Zeiss Conquest HD. My Swarovski bins are 8.5x42 so it wasn't a big jump in magnification but it helps. These feel heavy when you pick them up but when you have them up to your eyes, they don't feel as heavy. Must be the way they're balanced. And they are actually a few grams lighter than my Swarovski EL 8.5x42. The focus wheel doesn't require much turning to get the binocular in focus which is an advantage over my Swarovskis. I wish the ocular lens caps were made with a hinge so that they can be used with the binocular set at my interpupillary distance. These caps are joined with a rubber strip and I have to open out the binocular to use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Zeiss I buy Use the binoculars for birding. They fit well in the hands, quality is very good to excellent. The image is very bright and crisp. Focusing is smooth. Very satisfied with these binoculars, excellent for my use. Even though they are 10X I find the field of view adequate and as an eyeglass wearer I find them comfortable. Compared to much more expensive binoculars I found that while you could see a slight difference I did not feel an additional $1000-1500 was worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with my Zeiss Conquest 10x42 binoculars I am using my Conquest 10x42's for birding and am very happy with them in every way but one. The objective lens caps do not stay on, one would think a company like Zeiss would be able to figure out how to make a good lens protective system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice binocular Very happy with my purchase. Sharp, bright optics, sturdy construction. Great warranty by Zeiss. Purchased these after doing online research for weeks. Now I see why these binoculars get such great reviews. Loved them so much, I bought the 8x42's as well. Great value for those that want premium optics without paying alpha premium prices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for Birding I have moved up from a Minolta 10x25 to this binocular recently. First impression - it is well built, has a clear view and has the right balance of weight and magnification for birding all day. The strap and case are well designed. Only sore point is that the objective caps mentioned in manual are not supplied. Overall am very satisfied though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic binos Just recently returned from a moose hunt in Yukon, Canada. This was my first time using the Conquest binoculars. They worked flawlessly! Very clear, crisp image at relatively far ranges. Prior to purchasing these binos I had tried several other brands (including the alphas) and found these to be the same if not better, but at a cheaper price point. Very satisfied with this purchase!
