The Viper HD-a premium-quality binocular packed with everything you need and nothing you don't. Rugged, compact and lightweight (one of the lightest full-size binoculars to date), it's easy to see why the Vipers are award winners. Add in HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass for impressive resolution and color fidelity and the Vipers change more than the game. They change the results, too.

But I was just curious what the zeiss conquest had to offer since I've heard good things about the German brand.....well I tried them both side by side for 7 days at dawn, noon, and dusk, in the woods and on the ocean. I really couldn't see a difference that justified the extra 400+ dollars. Maybe a little clearer at dusk ...maybe.
The zeiss conquest(8x42) didn't show any mechanical problems with me like most reviewers mentioned about the eyecups, (a little hard to pull up but they extended all the way) focus wheel too smooth (took me 20 minutes to get the finesse for it ) etc. it's a really good pair that worked great.
Both binoculars gave me the 100% each had to offer.
The reason why I think the viper is better is because it gave me the same visual enjoyment than the conquest did but was almost half the price.
I'm not a zeiss hater. I'm not a vortex "fan boy" but people like me will appreciated my honest opinion. No need to spend your hard earned money on something that can give u same thing than something more affordable.
Maybe the conquest is more durable, but I'm not planning on driving a truck over them to find out or shooting them like I saw on a YT video. But if I do by mistake. Vortex guaranty will replace them for free.
Maybe the vortex razor will be more significantly better than the viper but I'm ok with my vipers. I'll also buy a spotting scope in the future to experience another level of wildlife viewing.
As for the glass, these were for my wife as I use the 12x50s. I am a huge fan. It is so nice to not have to pull out the spotting scope because you have binos that will reach out so far. The glass is awesome.
Edited to add: I have found that I LOVE these binoculars. This hunting season they were invaluable for spotting game at distance. I was on a hunt with strict harvest restrictions, and these binos worked great for identifying the right animals to take. They’ve also worked great at the shooting range for spotting my shots. Excellent binoculars. I’ve come to love them!!
My other pair are 10x25 Bushnell ultra compact. They are great for carrying around but not very practical for use. I realize it is almost like comparing apples to oranges, but here goes:
Although these are larger, they are MUCH easier to use because of the lower magnification (the view appears much more smooth and less shaky) and the longer eye relief. When I do a side-by-side, the 2x more magnification in the compact pair does not even seem noticeable (other than the amplified shaking of the image).
In this case, the reviews were right.
