Carl Zeiss Introduces New CONQUEST HD Binoculars

CHESTER, Va., January 16, 2012 – Carl Zeiss introduces the all new CONQUEST HD 8×42 and 10×42 binoculars.  The advanced Carl Zeiss HD lens system provides exceptional value and performance. Colors are neutral and clear with extra-low chromatic dispersion while the ZEISS T* multi-coatings, dielectric mirror coatings, and LotuTec® protective coating ensure a bright (90% transmission), vivid, sharp image any time of the day, in any weather. These premium binoculars are compact, lightweight and feature an ergonomic, modern design and traditional German quality.

The CONQUEST HD’s extra-wide field of view is impressive. The 10×42 features the widest field of view in its class (345 ft @ 1000 yds with the Conquest HD 10×42) and makes glassing for prolonged periods more pleasurable. The ergonomically designed grip area and large focus wheel ensure easy, precise handling in the field.   Featuring a rugged, lightweight aluminum body that is water and fog proof, close focus to 8 feet, precision mechanics and absolute reliability, the CONQUEST HD is an outstanding high-performance, multi-purpose binocular. Whether you are hunting in freezing conditions in Alaska, or birding in your backyard, the CONQUEST HD binoculars deliver top performance every time.

“The ZEISS CONQUEST HD binoculars represent a new level of quality in the premium market,” said Michael A. Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics.  “There is no finer European binocular on the market today for the money, and we are proud to add this sleek, rugged line for hunters, birders and outdoor enthusiasts who demand high performance and quality at an affordable price.”

The all new CONQUEST HD is part of the Carl Zeiss premium binocular line. All CONQUEST products are based on modern technology for exceptional value and performance. They are built with maximum durability for heavy life-long usage.
