NORTH CHESTERFIELD, Va., September 4, 2012 – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics is expanding its popular CONQUEST HD binocular line with the addition of 8×32 and 10×32 models. These lightweight and extremely durable binoculars are ideal for hunting, hiking, travel and a multitude of other outdoor adventures and sports events. Featuring the same German-made quality and advanced HD lens system found in the 42 mm CONQUEST HD models, the 32 mm Conquest HD binoculars provide exceptional performance for the money. With the high-performance HD optical technology, colors are neutral and clear while the ZEISS T* multi-coatings and dielectric prism coatings ensure light transmission of 90%. Zeiss’ LotuTec® protective coating also helps guarantee a clear, vivid image in any weather as water rolls right off and dirt wipes away with ease.
“The CONQUEST HD 32 mm binoculars are ideal for bowhunting and any other type of hunting where reduced size and weight are more important than the improved low-light performance you could get with larger objective lenses,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “These are also fabulous all-purpose binoculars for travel, sporting events and general nature observation given their size and weight. We’re thrilled to be able to offer our customers such exceptional quality at this price point.”
These compact, entry-level premium binoculars feature a sleek, ergonomic design and a rugged, lightweight magnesium body that is water and fog proof. The easy handling, extra large field of view and extremely close focus of 4.9 feet make using these binoculars an enjoyable and impressive experience. The CONQUEST HD binoculars also have adjustable twist eyecups ensuring easy viewing with or without glasses.
Each CONQUEST HD binocular comes with eyepiece and objective lens covers, a neoprene carrying strap, rugged cordura case, and is protected by Carl Zeiss’ industry leading limited lifetime transferable warranty and the ZEISS No-Fault Policy.
CONQUEST HD 8×32 $944.43
CONQUEST HD 10×32 $999.99
The new CONQUEST HD 32 mm binoculars will be available this fall.
