    Cons: A bit too hard to extract the eyepieces, you have to act gently to avoid the leakage.

    Pros: Excellent brightness, very low CA, no distortion, natural color, without that fake excessive contrast and oversaturation of some overrated Chinese optics less expensive. Strong mechanical construction, with the right weight in your hands, it seems very durable. Very resistant to flare, especially in front of the sun, in the late afternoon...

    Summary: For a long time I was looking for a pair of binoculars that would satisfy me like my venerable Nikon Sporting CF 10x50 from 1990, a big Porro design that is difficult to transport. Finally I found this Conquest HD. Very manageable and robust, more uniform and luminous, almost the same three-dimensionality! You have the impression of being immersed in what you see!

    Cons: The quality of the accessories leave much to be desired. But unimportant!

    Pros: Superlative vote for: contrast, resolution, brightness, eyerelief, large fov, nice flare control, distorsion and last but not least, endurance (very tough construction)

    Summary: All this in a very good price. Great pair of binocular.

    Cons: Not yet

    Pros: Has crystal clear view (Zeiss quality), with great contrast even very close from sunlight. I have not see any flare like in other binoculars!! I like very much the large visual field of Conquest, with performance up to the adge. They have a clear and three-dimensional image! Simply you can\'t put it down from the eyes.

    Summary: This is my best pair of binoculars by far. They have outstanding optics...Zeiss knows how to do it!

    Cons: Has a slightly rugged feels in the hands and lens caps could be better designed. Has a little bit green tone.

    Pros: Even if this instrument has very generous FOV, it has clarity at least 90% of this, and has a confortable eye relief for all eyeglass wearers. Very sharp and contrast with excellent light transmission. Very resistant to flare. I like very much 3D aspect of the image, almost similar to a porro type binoculars.

    Summary: A very solid pair of binoculars, with brilliant optics, nearly like alpha binoculars!!!...but at a lower price!!! I am very curious how to compare with the new Leica Trinovid, which is of the same price class.

    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).
