comparing the zeiss conquest, zeiss classics and kahles. They will be used for hunting out west. What do think?

The Classics first followed by the Kahles. I don't own any of the three but have searched out dozens of binocular comparisons over the years. Have not heard one bad thing about the Classics and haven't found too many that liked the Conquest, that's why I would pick the Kahles second.

1. Classic

2. Kahles

3. Conquest

 

The quality in the conquest line of scopes faltered when they tried to put it into a binocular.

What Brady said.

 

Although, if you are looking for the best bang for the buck, Zeiss and Kahles are not the brands to look at.

I bought the Kahles.  No complaints.  Tough, tough, tough binoculars.  I'm rough on hunting binoculars--I don't treat them near as nice as my birding binoculars.  The Kahles have been dropped, bumped, and flushed.

Great color, bright, excellent resolution.

As great, as bright, or as sharp as the others?  Don't know.  Don't need to know.

The Kahles are the right pair for me the way I hunt.  Superb consistent performance and I don't have to worry about babying them.

Their sight picture is as sharp as my Swift Audubon porros, they are brighter at dusk and dawn than my Nikon Premier E2 porros, and they carry well.  They come with a great strap, nice tethered objective covers, the focus ring is big and makes for quick adjustments.

I'm thinking about getting a pair of the 8x32's just to have a small version that I can coat pocket carry if need be.

The others are great optics.  The Kahles are great binoculars for hunting and rigorous outdoor use.  They're not bad for birding, either...

Just my two cents.

Take the long way home...
