That's a pretty good matchup you've got there.

- Optical performance you're probably splitting hairs as both are bright and sharp.
- The Minox might be a bit lighter.
- Ruggedness - I would give the edge to ZEISS Conquest as the housing they use is a polyamide which, unlike metal housings, will not dent when the binocular is dropped. It along with the rubber armoring provides more of a "flex" than aluminum or magnesium alloy housings do.
- Warranty - I do not know much about Minox's warranty but ZEISS has a Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.
- Also, ZEISS has a $200 rebate currently being offered on the 10x40 Conquest, bringing it down below the $1,000 mark. I am not sure if Minox is doing any rebates or discounts for the fall season so you might want to research that.

You probably can't go wrong with either binocular so I would say go with your gut. If you get a chance to look through both products that is always the best way to go about purchasing a binocular. It's all about how bright and sharp your eyes tell you the product is, how your hands tell you the binocular feels, etc.

Hope that helps a bit.
