I have a friend that is looking to move his 2004 Swarovski Optik EL 8.5x42 Binoculars and I could pretty much move my Zeiss Conquests and get the Swarovski's for about $400 more. Would this be a good move? How would the optics compare? I can't really do a side by side comparison immediately since he lives about 2 hours north, so I would like to get some feedback. 

What do you guys think? His Swarovski's are in beautiful shape with original box, case, documentation, etc. 

My initial thoughts are that the coating on the Zeiss could make them a better optic compared to the older Swaro's.. but I really want a pair of Swaros and have always loved the clarity.

Personally, reading your post I'm not sure if your talking about the new Conquest HD's or the standard Conquest binos, not even sure if your looking at a 8x42 configuration or a different one.... to get better assistance please also let us know what you paid for the Conquest binos, we can do the math and add $400.00 on top of that.


I will say that even if the Swaro EL's are of a 2004 vintage that they are a great choice and can still compete with most of the bino's out there today.
