Hi all,

I own swaros, Leica and the latest Zess victorys. As a group they a miles ahead 
of any of the other brands in the highest price bracket. However when i am on a 
photography rather than birding only tour, I always take my Zeiss Conquests. 
They are smaller and optically so close it is irrelevant except in the most 
challenging light. At around 1000 USD they are phenomenal value. I tinkered 
with other brands like Nikon and Kowa for the smaller bins for photography and 
they just did not match up to conquests.

in short, for the top three bins, whichever feel best in you hands, for the mid 
priced bins, nothing comes close to the conquests
