Excerpt: Two thumbs way up! Bought this Zeiss Conquest HD 8x32 Binocular from Eagle Optics last month. I've had many decent binoculars since starting bird watching in1988. I can only say that these give me the "WOW" factor when I put them up to my eyes!
Excerpt: Alpha optics at mid-range price Having had all of the alpha offerings including Swarovski EL, Zeiss Victory, Leica Ultravid, and Nikon EDG, I must admit to having been quite surprised by the stunningly clear and bright images provided by this latest mid range offering by Zeiss.
Excerpt: It's amazing what a top end bino has to offer in optics. The view in these are simply astounding. Clear, crisp, great contrast, no false color, no field distortion, great color fidelity, and amazing field of view and great comfort for eye glass wearers. They are also light weight and great for field work. I have trouble holding heavy things with my shaky hands and this pair are just perfect.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I can see clearly now... Christmas was coming. I had just participated in the annual Christmas Bird Count. The other 4 people in my group would make comments like, "Oh, you can tell that's a younger bird by it's eye color." Or "Oh, yes, see that little buffy patch on the secondaries?" What?! You can see eye color? I can barely see the eye! Although it was a wonderful day with friends and birds, I was left with a black cloud over my head.
Excerpt: Mid-priced alpha binoculars Zeiss has produced an impressive binocular in the Conquest 8x32 . Vivid accurate colors, no noticeable chromatic distortions, exceptionally bright, sharp image, great field of view, good low light performance and excellent contrast make these binoculars an excellent choice. Everything about this binocular speaks of quality.
Excerpt: Just what I was looking for! I have been birding for about 25 years and started out with Zeiss 10 x 40's which were "top of the line" for the time. I later bought a pair of Eagle Optics Ranger 8 x 42's for butterflying. I discovered that I really liked the Ranger's lighter weight as well as the ease of focus and close focus. The optics were acceptable, but I wanted a similar pair with better optics to use as my main binoculars.
Excerpt: Small enough to pack easily, but the optics are incredible! These Zeiss Conquest HD 8x32 Binoculars are extremely sharp and bright. I bought these to replace a pair of Bauch & Lomb 7x26 bins that I have had for over 20 years, for when I travel on birding trips.
Excerpt: I am a traveler and outdoors man in every sense of the word. And, regardless of what else I take along, binoculars were always on the short list. All three pairs I previously used (different sizes and magnification: 7X,8X,12X) were in the upper middle price range and fulfilled their tasks.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
