Diavari is the original line of Zeiss scopes and the Conquest has been built to compete with other brands at a lower price range.
They still make Diavari scopes and most have the 30mm tube where the conquest line has a 1 inch tube.

No, the current Conquest has the "MC" multicoatings and glass supplied by Meopta, whereas the older 3-9X Diavari had Schott glass and their T* multicoatings, the same as their 30mm Diavari scopes (minus the new "Lotutec" hydrophobic coating, of course).  The Diavari series scopes are a bit better than Conquest optically, but not by a huge margin.

Isn't Meopta glass acutally Schott glass?  That is what Richard at Meopta in New York told me.

I am not absolutely certain on this but I believe the glass is the same just imported and assembled here. The Diavari does have Lotutec lens coating along with fully T* multicoated lens. The Conquest does not have that. Also the Conquest is a 1" tube vs. the Diavari having a 30mm tube. Diavari is a 4x erector system where as the Conquest is only a 3X erector system.

Wouldn't surprise me, since many, if not most european manufacturers get their glass from Schott.

The Conquest coatings are what they call "MC," which isn't the same as the T* coatings.  I don't know what the difference really is, but I'm sure it's probably due to the fact Meopta supplies the lenses and therefore may supply them already coated.

I don't think you would be able to distinguish a big difference if any at all as far as image quality between that older Diavari and a NEW Conquest.
