    Cons: - one eyepiece broken after some months - focusing wheel too lose after some months - unusable against the light (for example against reflections of the sun in a lake) because of excessive stray light - image quality very uneven (except of very good sharpness and contrast)

    Pros: - very good sharpness and contrast - not too heavy

    Summary: 3 years later, I cannot anymore recommend the Conquest HD 10x42. Compared with my Meopta Meostar B1 7x42, it causes headache during extended viewing because of very uneven image quality.

    Cons: Some chromatic aberration at the edge of the field (but not bothering). Not so sharp on the very border of the view.

    Pros: Ideal weight for a magnification of 10-times (dampening hand vibrations). Great optics.

    Summary: Very good value, not far from a premium glass (but for much less money).
