The Germans are well known for their design, engineering and manufacturing skill. With the Zeiss Conquest HD 10x42, these skills have combined to produce a great set of binoculars. One of the finest pairs of entry-level binoculars that you will find are the Zeiss Conquest HD 10x42. Zeiss is well aware that these thousand dollar plus binoculars are not for everyone.  For those who want the best, Zeiss is the brand to consider.

The Conquest line is worth the price tag if you are looking for the best binoculars that money can buy.

What makes the Zeiss Conquest so special?

When it comes to this manufacturer, it is clear to see that every single feature is planned in detail. You do not become the leading binoculars manufacturer in the industry by relying on your name.  Zeiss creates new breakthroughs. Well known for pushing technology forward and their innovation. They leave all other brands scrambling to try to keep up. The Conquest HD 10x42 Binoculars is the first premium Zeiss binoculars priced below $1000.  For comparison, check out the [easyazon_link asin="B00QQUGPRA" locale="US" new_window="default" nofollow="default" tag="binocularsguy-20" add_to_cart="default" cloaking="default" localization="default" popups="default"]Zeiss Victory[/easyazon_link] range of binoculars all priced over $2000. Some might think it ridiculous spending more on binoculars than their mortgage. Zeiss understands this dilemma well. That is why the company created the Conquest HD range. An entry-level solution for its premium binoculars line.  Without reducing the quality and workmanship you enjoy from a pair of Zeiss binoculars. If you think it sounds ridiculous spending this much on a pair of binoculars, these aren't for you. The Conquest HD is for those who appreciate quality and workmanship.

As soon as you peer through these binoculars you will understand why there are so many Zeiss fanatics. Individuals that won't consider looking through anything but binoculars made by Zeiss. The high definition quality that these lenses produce is absolutely stunning. It makes you wonder if some kind of magic is inside of them. The Conquest range delivers stunning picture quality in any type of lighting situation. It produces sharp image tracking you will be able to use if your subject blurs past you or takes flight. The 10x42 lenses will allow you to get up close and personal with your subject. Even if you are hundreds of yards away.  You have the ability to zoom out quickly and the ability to take in the surroundings with more of a landscape view. This type of technology appears in many other binoculars. None of them produce that same crystal-clear picture provided by the Zeiss Conquest HD.


When it comes to full frame binoculars, it would be hard to find a more portable set that can. This product weighs less than 8 ounces.  You won't have any problem at all having it hang from your neck for many hours at a time. Or stuck to your hands when you are on a day-long bird watching trip. Zeiss has taken full advantage of the many principles they have been able to learn over the many decades of the company's existence. Zeiss have worked closely with various military forces. This helped them produce picture quality of the highest order in battle ready binoculars. When you hold these binoculars in hand, it is hard to believe that they can produce such clear images.

Durability And Construction Materials

Far and away, Zeiss provides the gold standard in construction for the binoculars world.  The Zeiss Conquest HD 10x4 Binoculars are no different. Only the absolute finest construction materials are used.  These binoculars offer long-term use, reliability and durability.  When investing in a pair of Zeiss binoculars, you get exactly what your money is paying for. You  get binoculars made according to high standards, which few other  (if any at all) companies can match.  You also get a product utlizing made of cutting-edge materials. This produces an unparalleled weight to strength ratio. The lenses are high density and produce sharp pictures without adding unnecessary weight.  Everything fits together well, and fog or water worries are something of the past.

Recommended Usage

It's hard imagining a situation where it wouldn't be handy to have the Zeiss Conquest HD in hand. Bird watchers will love them for the quick zoom. Ideal in situations where you need to transfer from a broad range approach to close quickly.  Outdoorsmen and hunters will love the lightweight construction. Coupled with the HD clarity and high density, these will give you the edge when hunting.

Final Thoughts

The Conquest HD comes in at less than half of that price, and still offers the same qualities. These Zeiss binoculars are super lightweight and picture-perfect.  They are the binoculars you have always dreamed of having, and they won't break your bank.  Sure, these are expensive Image, quality and engineering, nothing can beat them.  Except perhaps for the [easyazon_link asin="B00QQUGPRA" locale="US" new_window="default" nofollow="default" tag="binocularsguy-20" add_to_cart="default" cloaking="default" localization="default" popups="default"]Victory range also made by Zeiss[/easyazon_link]. But those come at more than double the price. Whenever you want the absolute best, you just cannot settle for anything less.  Don't be surprised if you end up falling head over heels for these.

Hunting Binoculars: Nikon Trailblazer 10×25 Review

Hunting Binoculars: Nikon Trailblazer 10×25 Review Find more on: The Binoculars Guy blog

[no_toc][easyazon_image add_to_cart="default" align="left" asin="B000K608IS" cloaking="default" height="160" localization="default" locale="US" nofollow="default" new_window="default" src="" tag="binocularsguy-20" width="160"] The Nikon Trailblazer 10x25 ATB Binoculars are compact and durable. Manufactured to withstand the harshness of the great outdoors. A good choice for hunters, sports fans, and trailblazers. These ATB's feature 10x magnification in 25mm objective lenses.

What's in the box?

  • The Nikon 8218 10x25 Trailblazer
  • 2 x Objective lens covers
  • 2 x Eyepiece covers
  • Neck strap
  • Carrying case
This set of binoculars comes with everything you need for a basic set-up. More experienced users might want to consider an upgrade. The quality of these add-ons is definitely cheap. The neck strap is uncomfortable, the carrying case is dull, and the eyepiece covers are too tight. (When removing them, there is a risk of detaching the eye reliefs altogether.) The lens covers, in contrast, fit perfect.

What are the specs?

The basics: These binoculars feature Bak4 roof prisms and multi-coated lenses. They have an IPD of 56-72mm, which will accommodate most users well. The twist-up eye cups provide up to 10mm of eye relief. Enough to adjust for eyeglasses or sunglasses. Focus: The central focus knob is quite smooth and allows for quick viewing at a range of 11.5' to as far as you need. I had an issue when removing the too-tight eyepiece covers. The diopter doesn't lock, which leads to accidental adjustments. Field of view: These binoculars have a range of 1000 yards. Considering the compact lenses and 10x magnification, this is an impressive number. (6.5° angular field view, 342' field of view.) This makes them great for scouting a location or watching a football game, as long as the light is good. Resilience: These binoculars offer decent protection from mold, fungus, and heat damage. They are 100% waterproof and fog-proof. Nitrogen-filled chambers and O-rings help keep the elements out, so you don't have to worry about your equipment being damaged. Light: These binoculars perform well during daylight hours. In low light conditions, it is a different story. Their light gathering capacity is pretty low. (They have a relative brightness of only 6.3). Heavy cloud cover or any low light conditions will affect their clarity and contrast. This is one of the biggest drawbacks. The 25mm lenses just doesn't have a large enough surface to gather all the light.

But, how do they feel?

They're pretty light, actually. With a protective rubber-armor coating, these binoculars weigh in at just under 10 ounces. Unfortunately, they've got a closed-bridge design. This means you won't be able to get a firm grip around the lenses when you try to keep it from banging against your chest.

Ok, how durable are these bad boys?

I was actually surprised to find that they're close to indestructible with normal use. The coating keeps them protected, and helps you keep a good grip on them in damp and rainy conditions. (Considering the closed design, every little bit of grip helps.) Even with the rubbery grip, I have dropped them from a fair height on a couple of occasions. Looking at them you won't be able to tell.

  • Small, rugged design
  • Eyepiece covers don't fit right
  • Sweet image quality for the size
  • Diopter doesn't lock
  • Outstanding field of view
  • Not good in limited light

In conclusion...

I wouldn't recommend them for bird watching. You won't be able to appreciate the colors of your subjects. But for users looking to scout locations or watch the game from the cheap seats, these are a decent option. The Trailblazer's normally retail for around $130. I would suggest you grab a pair if you see them advertised anywhere for under $100. You would be hard pressed to find a sub $100 binocular that is as durable.

Swarovski EL 8×32 W B Traveler Binoculars Review

Swarovski EL 8×32 W B Traveler Binoculars Review is republished from

Swarovski 8x32 EL Swarovision BinocularThe Swarovski EL 8×32 W B travel binoculars are great for those who love to travel. Let me get the price out of the way first up. These beauties will cost you near $2000. Yes, that is three zero's. These are not for everyone. In fact, they are probably not right for you. These are the perfect set of binoculars for the sophisticated traveler, who uses only the very best. Meet the Rolls-Royce of the binocular world. These are specifically designed for traveling and I think you will be very impressed with them. Austrian manufacturer of top rated binoculars, telescopes, rifle scopes, night vision instruments, and tripods, SwarovskiOptik has been in business for over 60 years and continues to create exceptional optics at reasonable prices.  So continue reading to see how well this particular pair of binoculars did in our swarovski binoculars review.

Built to last

There are a few things I look for when rating and reviewing a pair of binoculars. The first thing is the quality of the construction. How is the binocular built and put together? What materials were used? These things affect how long the binoculars will last and what they will be able to handle as far as certain weather conditions go. I also look at the quality of the images it produces. The purpose of using binoculars is to be able to bring something far away into your realm of vision. Binoculars help you see things you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. That’s why image quality is so important. And when you use the Swarovski EL 8×32 W B Traveler binoculars you will be pleasantly surprised at how great the image you see is. The attention to detail can’t be described in words. I would dare to say these binoculars are impeccable when it comes to image. This is because they spare no expense and use only top quality coatings and components. The workmanship is also pretty impeccable. You will like the way it looks. It also comes with some pretty great accessories such as a neck strap, carrying case and a cloth to clean the lens. And if you want to spend a little extra money you can get the snap shot adapter. Its a great feature you will really enjoy.

No angle too wide

Another thing you will love is the field of view. When you are traveling having a wide field of view is extremely important. That’s the only way you will be able to see all the things you want to see. With the Swarovski EL 8×32 W B Traveler binoculars, you get a field of view that spans 140m at a distance of 1,000 meters. This makes them one of the best wide angle binoculars available. This feature alone is what makes this pair of binoculars so popular for people who travel a lot. It is also very popular amongst bird watchers. [easyazon_block add_to_cart="default" align="right" asin="B007Q4LWPK" cloaking="default" layout="top" localization="default" locale="US" nofollow="default" new_window="default" tag="binocularsguy-20"]Lastly let’s talk about price and how much you can expect to pay for a pair binoculars of this caliber. Keep in mind these binoculars are of very high quality. It is built with quality materials and it uses quality components to enhance your travel experience. This type of stuff doesn’t come cheap. And when it comes to binoculars, you really do get what you pay for. The Swarovski EL 8×32 W B Traveler binoculars will run you over $2,000. That might sound like a lot, but if you are a refined traveler you will see the benefit in investing in a pair of binoculars of this caliber. Your fellow travelers will be looking on in jealousy when you whip out your pair of Swarovski's.
