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.

Comfortable observation is not just a matter of lenses. Ergonomics plays a major role, too – and this is where the modern design of the CONQUEST HD comes into its own. When you reach quickly for your binoculars your index finger sits almost automatically on the large focussing wheel while the remaining fingers rest on the specially moulded grip.
The eyecups round off its ergonomic perfection. Slightly slanted, they are carefully aligned to aid observational comfort. Light and secure handling is combined with superb comfort for your observation of the natural world.
Widest field of view
You can quickly pick out individual animals from large groups and seek out hidden birds in clumps of bushes. The CONQUEST HD 10 x 42, with the widest field of view in its class, is the perfect option in this instance. As well as having an extremely wide field of view it also boasts very high 10 x magnification. You can enjoy effortless observation and a particularly steady image with the CONQUEST HD 8 x 42. Whichever model you choose, these binoculars promise detailed insights at long range.
Innovative lens coating
Water simply rolls off the lens as it does from a lotus leaf or off a duck's back. The LotuTec® coating on the lens and eyepiece ensures that water or snow simply roll off the surface of the glass. Since neither water nor dirt can collect on the surface of the CONQUEST HD you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching nature.
Precision at close quarters
When observing at close quarters you can rely on the highest precision. Even close up the new CONQUEST HD shows its strengths. Whether you are watching birds, insects or butterflies at close quarters, with the CONQUEST HD you will be able to identify every detail with an impressively clear and neutral colour reproduction.
