Mind (and eyes) Blowing By
This pair of binoculars are for me, the best from all the roof type of binos.
At the beginning, I wanted to buy the Swaro SLC 8x56.
But I changed my mind.

Here's why:

First, Abbe-Koenig prism, allowing 93% of light transmission.
Only the Swarovski SLC 56 and these Zeiss Conquest 56 achieve this figure.
The Swaro EL are "only" 90% (which is already amazing figure).

Optically speaking, the tests made by independant reviewers show that the Zeiss Conquest 56 are as good (or even better) optically as the Swaro SLC 56.
But optical qualities are "seen" (or not) differently from one person to another.
So I went to a shop, and compared them.
To my eyes (and brain), no difference.

The Zeiss are built like a tank, and resist to almost everything (take a look at the durability test on YouTube to convince you).
I have not seen Swaro daring doing this type of test (but I'm quite convinced somehow that the SLC would resist).

The warranty is the same.

Little things are different though, the field of view (better on the SLC),
the closest focus distance (better on the Zeiss).
The weight (the SLC are lighter).

At the end, the biggest difference is the price, the Zeiss costing 500 Eur less than the Swaro SLC.

So at the end, why paying so much more for the same product, optically speaking?
