The Terra ED feels solid....compact and light, feels good in the hands....provides great optical performance - I also tested it in low light conditions and was very happy with it.
But I guess the fact that its manufactured in China (vs Germany) brings the price down right there....time will tell, if there are any issues...but I do trust Zeiss and their Quality Control....so far, this product feels like they did a great job..
I am taking it to the Yellowstone Nat.Park in a few days where I will be testing it some more together with my Zeiss Dialyt spotting scope.
Sept 08/2014 update:
after using the binuculars for over a week (including Yellowstone), I noticed when twisting/turning the eye cups, it slides beyond the point when its supposed to stop....it did feel kinda stiff when i turned the eye cups right at the beginning, but I thought maybe that's the way its supposed to be..until I visited Cabela's and another store and compared with other Terra models.....so when i turn the eye cups, its very stiff and when it reaches the maximum point where it should stop, it does keep turning....apparently, the glued part underneath isnt holding.....so i am returning the binoculars...optically though, I like it.plus its light and compact and it feels good in the hands...so, i am thinking about getting another model....it appears, i just got one bad egg...hopefully, the next one will be OK
Sept 19/ 2014 update:
I compared the Terra with Conquest HD side by side for two days....exposed it to different conditions...during the day, at dusk/dawn...at night..etc...and I must say, i honestly couldn't see much difference in optical performance between the two models...
Also, the Terra feels better in my hands...its slightly lighter and i like how compact it is....
now, I am debating which one to keep, and if the Conquest is worth the double cost. Optically, I dont see it justified to pay 2x the money for the Conquest, as the Terra really does a great job...but the issue with the eye cups made me cautious....more info to follow soon
October 22, 2014 update:
I decided to go with the Conquest 10x42HD. Although I liked the Terra as well (maybe even better due to light weight and good overall performance), but the issue with eye cups made me cautious of possible lack of good Quality Control at their facility in China. Thus, I decided to go with their higher priced upgrade and made in Germany binoculars = Conquest 10x42.
The Conquest feels very solid. From my experience with other made-in-Germany products, you cant beat their quality control.
To me that's the key, as I fear I might run into other issues with the Terra later on when the 5-year warranty expires.
As I dont buy expensive optics every day, i believe this Zeiss Conquest 10x42 offers enough great features to stay with me for the next few decades, so that i dont get tempted to spend more money on other binoculars..:-)
