best optics purchase I've ever made
5.0 stars
By Gary

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!

lotutecZEISS LotuTec coating

Lotus flower effect
A principle from nature: The lotus flower effect.That is the water repelling characteristic of surfaces, to simply let water drops pearl off and to repel dirt. LotuTec acts as protective coating and cleaning and care is made expecially easy.
This technology has been used by Carl Zeiss for millions of spectacle lenses for a long time.



A contact angle of max. 95° leads to flat water drops  


Contact angles more than 110° lead to ball-like water drops.
Without LotuTec
As with most leaves, moisture and dirt particles collect on the surface and adhere.
  With LotuTec
Just like in a lotus flower, the drops simply pearl off. Dirt and finger prints can be easily removed from the smooth surface.
