Zeiss Conquest HD--adequate eye relief?


I'm considering buying the Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42 binocular, and have heard some users complain about the eye relief not being long enough for non-eyeglass wearers.

Has Zeiss addressed this, or have they introduced a new eye cup design?

Thank you,

John G.


Hi John,
Thanks for your inquiry. According to Zeiss, and in our own experience, a great majority of non-eyeglass wearers don’t have a problem with the eye relief on the Zeiss 8x42 Conquest HD Binocular. Therefore,  Zeiss isn’t planning any changes. However, if you decide to purchase it and you do require longer eye relief, we can facilitate getting you the replacement eyecups. 

Definitely try it to find out if it works for you--most likely, it will!

All the best,

Eagle Optics


  1. Zeiss gave me the replacement eyecups, and they work for me.
