Remarks:

Zeiss’ “Conquest” line of binoculars was marketed as the second best behind the “Victory” line, and now with the Conquest “HD” on the market, this still holds true. An overall decent optical performance thanks, among other things, to Abbe-König prisms, although with a bit too much CA for today’s standards, and reliable mechanics made this a welcome companion for many hunters and wildlife observers who did not want to spend the money for one of the “Victory” models.
