Zeiss’ “Conquest HD” series is placed in the middle between the entry-level “Terra” line of binoculars and the premium class “Victory” instruments. The Conquest HD comes in 7 different sizes and configurations between 8×32 and 15×56, and each model has achieved some sort of reference status in its class, the upper middle class to upper class section of the market. This is also true for this 8×32, which “outperforms” many similarly priced and even more expensive binoculars with its excellent central and good edge sharpness, good stray-light control, a bright image with good CA correction and nice wide field of view.
