For those who have looked through them, for an overall high country hunting optic (glassing to 1000 yards) which of the two would you recommend..
 
ZR Prime 10x42 or the Zeiss Conquest HD 10X42??? These are the two I have narrowed down too. The Zeiss would cost me a couple hundred dollars more, but I would be willing to spend that if it is worth it. I would assume optically they are about the same, but I like the idea of better long term resale, durability, and made in Germany that the zeiss offers.  However I have used ZR products before and always found them first rate.

The Zeiss Conquest HD has the slightly wider field but a shorter ER; I've owned this bino in 8x42 and chopped it as the comparatively weak center field sharpness didn't justify the cost.

I havent had the opportunity to look though the ZR Prime but I got to use the Zeiss Conquest HD 10-42 this year in Kansas. They are worth the money.  They are the best I have used and will be buying a pair before I go back next year.

I like the Conquests of those two, but I like the Meopta HDs more.
