The Zeiss Conquest HD 8×42 has been designed as a robust companion for use during twilight. Its 8x magnification ensures that the image remains steady. The HD lens system guarantees the best color reproduction for impressive observation. Whether you are watching birds or whales on the ocean or wildlife in woodland or rough terrain, the 8x magnification is the perfect solution. The special design also ensures that the 8×42 is extremely comfortable to use. The large focusing wheel is always close at hand, so that even at close range, for example, the smallest details can appear sharp and color neutral.

Higher definition glass produces 90% to-the-eye light transmission, great low-light performance and excellent target resolution across the entire magnification range.

ZEISS T*® coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images­­ which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.

Comfortable observation is not just a matter of lenses. A comfortable focus system with the large focusing wheel ensures easy handling, optimum grip and precise focusing even with gloves. The eyecups round off its ergonomic perfection. Slightly slanted, they are carefully aligned to aid observation comfort.

There are always exciting things to be seen in the world of nature – even in wet weather. This is why ZEISS developed LotuTec®. A coating for the lenses of binoculars and spotting scopes that enables a clear and unhindered view in all weather conditions.
