The heavy-duty binocular for every hunt.

The well-balanced Conquest® HD binoculars provide outstanding performance for an amazing hunting experience. Uncompromising design, ergonomics and optics at an unbelievably attractive price. The ZEISS Conquest HD binoculars are available in seven models with either 8x, 10x or 15x magnification.

The Conquest HD 8x32 is a lightweight model that is ideal for stalking game during the day. Its compact size makes it a convenient companion in difficult terrain. The 8x magnification provides a good overview and shake-free images. The near setting of just 1.5 meters allows you to experience crisp images and clear colors up close. The 8x32 satisfies all ergonomic requirements: the focusing wheel is so conveniently placed that it can always be quickly and easily used.

Designed as a rugged, twilight-capable, and highly reliable binocular for a wide range of hunting applications, the Conquest HD 8x42 delivers a steady image in all situations thanks to the 8x magnification.

Within the Conquest HD family, the HD 8x56 offers the largest eye relief and brightest image combined with image stability for fatigue-free viewing over longer periods of time with far less hand-held shake-induced image disturbance. Whether you are hunting in the first light of the day or late into the evening, the Conquest HD 8x56 is an ideal choice.

The HD lens system and T* (T star) six-layer light-transmission coating guarantees maximized color rendition and image brightness. The large focusing wheel is always close at hand, so that even at close range, such as when bow hunting, the smallest details can appear sharp and color neutral. The overall design is greatly appreciated once in-hand whether you are or are not wearing gloves.

90% Light Transmission

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

Optimized operating elements

Comfortable observation is not just a matter of lenses. The 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. 

Compact and robust construction

Compact size, low weight and robust body construction guarantee readiness for use under all conditions. Comfortable observation is not just a matter of lenses. Ergonomics plays a major role too – and this is where the CONQUEST HD, with its compact size and lightweight, modern design, truly comes into its own. 

A clear view, whatever the weather

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.

ZEISS T* Coating

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.
