Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42 binoculars feature superb Schott HD prism glass and the innovative Zeiss lens system. The HD glass provides maximum light throughput with virtually no distortion for the sharpest image quality possible. The T* full multi-coating provides brilliant (90% light transmission!) high-contrast image quality, while the Lotu-Tec exterior lens coating sheds water and dirt to make them easy to clean and maintain. The 8x42 Conquest HD binoculars will close focus to 8.2 feet and have 18 mm of eye relief. Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42 binoculars are remarkably lightweight at just 24.7 ounces.

best optics purchase I've ever made
Purchased this binocular December 2019. It's now May 2020. Fair to say the placebo effect has faded. I'm still delighted. On occasion I'm blown away. Upgraded from the Celestron Granite (which is a good binocular, in my opinion). But the Zeiss Conquest HD 8X42 is in a different league. I can't go back and see my first trogon with this, instead of the Tasco I had in 1978. But every bird I do see is now rendered in crisp and faithful detail.
It must be the glass! And the LotuTec coating really does seem to work. I spend much less time cleaning lenses, and it even shed water reasonably well.
One point. Not a problem, just a suggestion. When the eyecups are fully twisted down for a person with eyeglasses, you may find the oculars too close. I twist my eyecups out very slightly (less than a quarter of a turn) and it makes a difference. Your results may vary, but when you find the sweet spot you'll enjoy the view.
Pete told me I'd see the difference. He was right!
