Combining high-definition optics and their proprietary lens coatings, the 10x32 Conquest HD Binocular features the optical technologies and build qualities one would expect from an optic that was made in Germany by Zeiss Sports Optics. Performance begins with high-definition glass elements that transmit crisp and clear images across the entire wide field of view with minimal distortion. Zeiss' T* coatings reduce reflection to improve light transmission, color fidelity, and overall image contrast to further improve image quality and brightness. Complementing the T* are LotuTec coatings which are applied to exterior lens surfaces. LotuTec is a hydrophobic coating that makes water bead and run off the lens, and makes oils and sap easy to clean off, so the lenses keep clean even in inclement weather.
