Zeiss’ Conquest HD comes in 7 versions, two x32, two x42 and three x56. They make up Zeiss’ second tier binocular line behind the various “Victory” models and have gained sort of a “reference status” in their respective markets, because their good mechanical and optical performance is complemented by competitive pricing. The 10×56 is a good example; it competes directly against the market leading same size Swarovski SLC (see separate post “Swarovski SLC 10×56”), which it beats not only in terms of the size of its FOV, but particularly in price (about 25% cheaper). On the other hand, off-axis sharpness and CA correction do not reach the level of the SLC. Still, the Conquest HD impresses with excellent central sharpness and a wonderfully bright image.
