The Conquest HD series of binoculars have been a big hit for the past few years because of their unbeatable price to performance ratio. The new Conquest HD in 15X56 isn’t going to be any different. Truly designed for the hard core western big game hunter who needs to scour the terrain several miles away, these new binoculars have everything you are looking for.
These new bino’s are made in Germany with an HD “High-Definition” lens system containing enhanced Zeiss T* multi-coatings on the lens surfaces. Additionally, the highly-efficient Abbe-Koenig prism system further enhances optical performance to allow these binoculars to achieve 93% light transmission, which is unheard of in a binocular in this price range. The leading products of competitors generally deliver less than 90% transmission and are thus noticeably inferior to the Conquest HD 56. The 56mm objective lens provides for a great field of view showing the user a whopping 240 feet of area at one thousand yards. The LotuTec protective coating guarantees clear visibility at any weather condition and a more durable lens surface that resists scratching in arsh conditions.
The perfectly balanced ergonomics give the user enhanced comfort while viewing distant targets. If you are going to pick apart a hillside a couple of miles away hand-holding isn’t an option for these 15X bino’s and will require the use of a tripod. You will be happy to know that a ¼” tripod adapter is included in the box. The three step roll up eyecups will provide a comfortable eye relief for any user. The diopter adjustment is on the right barrel of the optics and although it isn’t a locking type, it has sufficient resistance to make sure it stays in place once set. Each unit is nitrogen filled and 100% waterproof. They tip the scale at 45.6 ounces which is about standard for a 15×56 binocular, but the high quality glass is worth every ounce when you are spending hours looking for that trophy sheep. They are 8.3” tall and 5.7” wide with an interpupillary adjustment range of 57-74mm.
The craftsmanship and quality of the Conquest HD 15×56 is exactly what you would expect from a high end German optics company. These will become an heirloom to hand down for many generations. It is good to know that they are covered by Carl Zeiss’s 5-Year No-Fault Policy and Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
