Leica Trinovid HD 8x42 VS Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42

Introduction of Leica Trinovid HD 8x42 VS Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42

Leica and Zeiss both have an admirable pedigree when it comes to the binoculars market. Both of these companies have been the top-selling manufacturer in the industry.

It is remarkably difficult to stand out of the crowd if the products are so alike, like the Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42, and the Leica Trinovid HD 8x42.

Both brands produce high-quality optics in Wetzlar, Germany – even though this model of Leica binoculars is made in Portugal.

With history stretching back, the first Leica Trinovid already came into the picture in the 60s, while the first Zeiss Conquest was produced in the 2000s.

Why is that? You guessed it – to compete for its customers.
