Good optics

You can see even the finest of contours in high contrast with pin sharp images. Every natural object, whether it is a plant or an animal, is brought closer to you in great detail.

Reliable and lightweight

The housing of the Conquest is hard-wearing and very lightweight. It never feels heavy, even on lengthy walks and in the hunting field. The Conquest binoculars are encased in rubber armour, which protects them from knocks and also ensures that they retain their pleasingly firm grip in cold or wet conditions.
The Conquest binoculars are also waterproof and filled with nitrogen. So you can go outside in any weather without your binoculars suffering from internal condensation. They are always reliable and ready for use - in rain, snow or cold weather.

Simple to operate

The ergonomic design of the Conquest binoculars makes them comfortable to hold and use. The twistable eye cups drop securely into the chosen position.
The diopter adjustment is positioned in such a way that it is easy to use yet cannot be moved inadvertently. The focussing mechanism can even be operated wearing gloves.

Low light capability thanks to Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating

In twilight conditions or woodland, in the interplay of light and shade, these binoculars do not suffer from any loss of light. The Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating ensures high transmission; in other words it lets plenty of light in. This elaborate lens coating gives you a bright and clear image even in poor light conditions.

For even more versatility

A Cordura pouch, a carrying strap, eyepiece covers and a lens cleaning cloth are included with every pair of Conquest binoculars.
The broad, comfortable neoprene strap is non-slip and very easily adjustable. Robust rubber covers provide effective protection for the lenses from dust, moisture and scratches. The eyepiece cover is attached to the carrying strap, which means it cannot get lost when it has been taken off.

By adding further accessories you can make your Conquest binoculars even more versatile.

Binofix tripod adapter

The universal adapter ensures that the Carl Zeiss binoculars of 30 mm lens diameter can be mounted quickly and easily on any type of tripod. This then enables stable observation over longer periods of time, even at extremely high magnifications. When used with the triple boost of the Mono attachment you can enjoy a visual experience similar to that provided by a spotting scope.

Mono 3x12 T*

If you want to take a closer look, the Monobooster can be fixed onto the eyepiece using an adapter ring and can easily be taken with you wherever you go. The VICTORY HT, Victory FL/RF and Conquest binoculars of 30 mm lens diameter can thus be turned into a high-performance spotting scope in the blink of an eye by tripling the magnification. The Mono 3x12 T* can also be used on its own as a miniature telescope or as a magnifying glass at close range.


Carrying strap with Air Cell comfort

This enables you to carry binoculars with a lens diameter of 30 mm or more far more comfortably should you have a long deerstalking expedition ahead of you. The air cells embedded in the material make the strap much more comfortable to wear while the quick release fasteners mean that the high-quality strap is easy to put on and take off. The length is fully adjustable.

What do the abbreviations mean?

Meaning of the abbreviations

FL
Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses

GA
Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour

T*
ZEISS T* multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility

MC
ZEISS multi-layer coating (multi coating)

P / P*   
Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating

B
Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used

S
Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation

M
Riflescope models with ZEISS mounting rail.

iC
Riflescope with illumination control

ED
Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations

HD
High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution

HT
High Transmission = lenses by SCHOTT with very good transmission properties.

SF

Smart Focus = Conventional binoculars require the focusing wheel to be turned 2.5 times in order to switch from the close focus to the maximum observation distance. The VICTORY SF only requires the wheel to be turned 1.8 times.
