The lightweight view into the distance

High performance hidden behind compact dimensions and lightweight design - that is the beauty of the Conquest range of binoculars. As the entry model into the premium class of Carl Zeiss, these binoculars have been designed with a particular focus on imaging performance, colour reproduction and image brilliance. The Conquest binoculars are particularly versatile, which makes them equally useful for enthusiastic birdwatchers and nature lovers alike, as well as for a whole range of other outdoor and leisure activities. Whether you use them at short range in your own garden, on ornithological trips, in the twilight or for watching birds at very long distance, you are bound to find the right binoculars in the Conquest range to suit your needs - and at an affordable price too.

Here you find the top features of the Conquest binoculars.

High-performance optics

The Conquest models offer brilliant images with great colour fidelity. The use of achromatic lenses means that you can see even the finest contours with ...

Reliable and lightweight

The housing of the Conquest binoculars is hard-wearing and very lightweight, as well as being waterproof and resistant to internal condensation.

Simple to operate

The ergonomic design of the Conquest binoculars includes comfortable, twistable eye cups, which drop securely into their final position.

High-performance optics

Birdwatchers wishing to identify small details and differences in plumage look above all for colour fidelity and brilliant images. The use of achromatic lenses reduces the problem of chromatic aberrations to a minimum. Fine contours, such as chin stripes or wing bars, can be identified in pin sharp detail thanks to these lenses. Whether you use them for watching fascinating displays of nature, such as birds or whales, or for sporting events, travelling and other activities, the Conquest binoculars are truly versatile. Be sure not to miss the rich and varied details of the world around you.

Reliable and lightweight

Conquest binoculars are designed for virtually any use. Whether you are birdwatching on the coast, on safari through the desert or on a cruise into the polar seas, they are protected by their exceptionally lightweight but hugely robust housing. The rubber armour on the outside completely protects the internal optics from any knocks or blows. Naturally, the Conquest binoculars are also waterproof and filled with nitrogen. This means your binoculars are reliable and ready for use out of doors, whatever the weather.

Simple to operate

For catching a quick glimpse of a chiffchaff in the bushes or following the soaring flight of a buzzard up high, the Conquest binoculars are ergonomically designed to lie comfortably in the hand, with maximum ease of use. You can screw the twistable eye cups into the optimum position for your eye relief. Meanwhile, the location of the diopter adjustment means that it is easy to adjust but unlikely to be inadvertently knocked out of position.

Low light capability thanks to Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating

You will really notice the difference on dark autumn days or when watching owls in the spring. The unique Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating, ensures that plenty of light comes through the lenses in all Carl Zeiss binoculars. This enables you to watch birds with unrivalled clarity and brightness in twilight, dark weather conditions and even in the interplay of light and shade found in woodland.

You can choose between six Conquest models.

Conquest 12x45 T*

The 12x magnification of these binoculars helps you to carry on observing at exceptionally long distances. In the case of shy birds, in particular, such as bustards, you can find and observe them in good time without disturbing them. The Conquest 12x45 T* will not just impress you with their sharp images but also with their lightweight design and ease of handling.

For even more versatility

A Cordura pouch, a carrying strap, eyepiece covers and a lens cleaning cloth are included with every pair of Conquest binoculars.
The broad, comfortable neoprene strap is non-slip and very easily adjustable. Robust rubber covers provide effective protection for the lenses from dust, moisture and scratches. The eyepiece cover is attached to the carrying strap, which means it cannot get lost when it has been taken off.

By adding further accessories you can make your Conquest binoculars even more versatile.

Binofix tripod adapter

Steady observation over long periods at high magnifications. The universal Binofix tripod adapter enables you to fix Carl Zeiss binoculars of 30 mm lens diameter onto conventional video and camera tripods. If you combine the binoculars of the Victory FL or Conquest ranges with the triple magnification of the Mono you can enjoy a visual experience similar to that of a spotting scope.

Mono 3x12 T*

Triple magnification! The Mono booster 3x12 T* allows you to turn your VICTORY HT, Victory FL/RF and Conquest binoculars into a high-performance spotting scope. The small Mono booster can be fastened to the eyepiece by means of an adaptor ring, tripling the magnification of your binoculars. Even without binoculars the Mono 3x12 T* can be used as a magnifying glass for insect observation at close quarters or as a miniature telescope.

Carrying strap with Air Cell comfort

Binoculars are much more comfortable to carry using the Air Cell Comfort carrying strap. Cushions of air sealed within the material spread the weight of the binoculars across the entire neck area, which makes them noticeably much more comfortable to carry. On long observation days and extended hikes the Air Cell Comfort carrying strap offers welcome relief for your neck and shoulders. The carrying strap is suitable for binoculars with a lens diameter of 30 mm or more.
