This entry raises the bar on Zeiss’ Conquest line. Billed as a “premium entry-level” optic, the HD is made entirely in Germany and boasts a five-year no-fault repair policy. The Zeiss dominated the low-light test–and is adequately crisp. Our 10×42 had a marvelously full and balanced hand feel and precise focus. Our only gripes: some blue fringing and edge distortion in this otherwise solid, affordable European optic.
