I have been looking into some better binocs for a while now. The only real experience is with Nikon Monarchs my dad bought about 2 years ago. I assume the Zeiss glass would be better. Hopefully I would be as impressed with their bino's as I was my Conquest scope. I also saw a pair of Kahles on the samplelist for $499. I was looking at 10x40, or 12x45 Conquests. I could buy either for about $625. HELP! I am really having a hard time making a choice. Other suggestions would be considered. Have about $660 to spend.

I use Kahles 8X42's and they are great.  Haven't used Conquest but you'd be happy with either, I think.  You really need to hold both of them and see which you prefer.  Binocs are a lot more "personal" than a rifle scope.

I would not buy the 12x45 version. All their optical imperfections will be exacerbated by their high magnification. Add the handshake to this, and you end up with a useful binocular, but not a pleasant one to look through.
I have looked through the Conquests a few months ago. I think that the 8x40 would be the one most useful for hunting. It is very bright and sharp.
