Does anyone have any experience with the new Zeiss Conquest binoculars (8x40 T* ABK or 10x40 T* ABK)


Any opinions on the Conquest line of binoculars? How do they perform in low-light conditions?

I tried out a pair of Zeiss Conquest 12x40's at a gun shop this week.  I took them outside (on an overcast and drisly rainy afternoon) and poked around the edge of the woods out back.  They struck me as very light weight (especially for a 12x binocular) and very bright.  I didn't think they were sharp enough all the way to the edge as you'd expect for a $500 binocular, but they were plenty sharp enough for hunting.  When scanning into the interior of the woods from the outer perimeter, it was like someone turned a light on when I peered at downed timbers and the like.

For 12's, I could hold them remarkably steady.  The center focus knob wasn't as nice as my Kahles, but overall, I really liked the Conquests.  But then again, I like most every nice pair of binocs that I handle.  I didn't buy them, but I made a mental note that if I ever found a pair at a discount, I'd like to have them.

Just my two cents.
Take the long way home...
