I've returned the Zeiss Conquest HD 10x42 binoculars and now I have the money to buy another binocular. I've found on eBay a Carl Zeiss Jena Dodecarem 12x50 B at 750 Euro, shipping included, and I was wondering if this bino is worth the price.
I was looking at this Zeiss or a Meopta Meostar B1.1 10x50. I don't know if this Zeiss is still competitive against modern binoculars given the fact that is 30 years old.
I personally would not buy a Dodecarem for 750 EUR which i see overpriced. With 750 EUR you can buy a modern 10x50 (like APM) and if you still have the Zeiss bug, you can get a Dekarem/Jenoptem
As JG stated, a Docter Nobilem is another option (if still interested in vintage high quality Porros)
If Schilling does not answer, try Optik Service Rathenow, they sell also Zeiss binos and at the same time they have the repair workshop inherited from Zeiss Jena. I have used Optik Service Rathenow and they are very serious and professional.
Meopta is also a very good choice
