    Below a certain level stalkers go with Minox because it rhymes with Xbox and they can spell it but in the real world Zeiss crushes all before it.

    If trying to decide between an 8x32 and an 8x42 work out how wide a field of view you require. Both of these Conquest HDs are excellent, for younger eyes the 8x42 will give you 5-8 minutes longer at dusk.

    I've a pair of Leica 8x32 in the classifieds that would be at least as good as the Zeiss. The eye relief is excellent so should cope with any unsteadiness well.

    When I bought my 8/42 conquest I spoke to the lad from Ziess who stalks and his advice was get the 42 if you were in woodland or looking into it last or first thing. I love my conquest bins delighted with them

    If you shoot first/last go for 8x56 more weight but much more light

    Hi James put a bit more in the pot and go for the Victory binos in 8x42 absolutely brilliant and as good imo as Swaros, for less cash.
