Quote: Zeiss did a great job reducing the overall weight, so that is a plus. Unfortunately, (as everyone knows), a binocular in the 15x range is going to be victimized by shake and the Conquest's weight, although desireable, has a negative effect rather than a positive effect on combating shake. At least that was my opinion.

Quote:Even though I can't afford to buy ANY of them , I think the ongoing competetiveness between the likes of Leica , Nikon , Swarovski and Zeiss is overall a GOOD thing for true binocular afficianados .Kenny
