Great moments start with the right optics:
ZEISS CONQUEST DL.

The new riflescope range is a consistent update of the proven Duralyt concept and offers you uncompromising “Made in Germany” quality. It stands for the perfect combination of versatility and reliability in every detail: optimum image quality and target resolution thanks to modern multi-layer coatings, a fine reticle in the 2nd image plane for minimum target coverage and a robust construction with an outstanding mechanism. Thanks to its optical performance, it is the best riflescope in its class, which exhibits all of its strengths, even under the most challenging hunting conditions.

Here you find the top features of the CONQUEST DL riflescopes.

Outstanding image quality

Modern multi-layer coatings ensure optimum image brightness and target resolution.

Minimum target coverage

The fine reticle in the 2nd image plane ensures minimum target coverage and best visibility.

Precise repeat accuracy

Rely on an extremely robust construction and an outstanding mechanism.

Outstanding image quality

The CONQUEST DL offers optimum image quality and target resolution. This is due to the modern, multi-layer coatings, which ensure a high level of light transmission. Further evidence of the well thought-out, stable system is demonstrated by the wide angle field of view and the secure eyepiece.

Minimum target coverage

CONQUEST DL riflescopes are available with the non-illuminated reticle 6 and the illuminated reticle 60 for daylight use. Both reticles offer minimum target coverage – and the illuminated reticle 60 also has outstanding visibility, thanks to a fine, bright illuminated dot in the 2nd image plane. This means you can rely on a consistently fine reticle across the entire magnification range and can change the magnification at any point.

Precise repeat accuracy

Precision in every hunting situation – this is provided by an extremely robust construction and the usual reliable mechanism. Whether you are on the driven hunt, stalking or stand hunting, by day or in twilight – it is in intensive conditions that you benefit most from the individual strengths of the CONQUEST DL. This riflescope was tested in our laboratories under extreme conditions, which are seldom encountered in real life. The result: secure function even in conditions ranging from -25 to +50 degrees Celsius.

New ASV for CONQUEST DL models

Operation is now even faster and more precise with the new ASV bullet drop compensator. Thanks to the linear scale of 1 cm per click to 100 m, the measured shooting distance can be set with centimetre precision and allows for precise aiming to provide maxi- mum operating range during hunting. The new ASV is available as an option on the 2–8 x 42 and 3–12 x 50 models.

Innovative lens coating

Enjoy the easy cleaning and clear vision in any weather. The LotuTec® coating ensures that water runs straight off the lens and dirt can be easily removed without a trace.

Made in Germany

The CONQUEST DL offers uncompromising “Made in Germany” quality and is the perfect combination of versatility and reliability. With our optics and technology we always comply with the very highest requirements and constantly set new standards.

Improved ergonomics

The CONQUEST DL was designed for greater comfort. Its outstanding ergonomic shape makes it really easy to operate – even when you are wearing gloves. Two non-slip, rubberised touch buttons – Plus und Minus – are used to adjust the brightness securely and continuously.

Modern design and compact construction

Not only is the modern design very attractive with its black, anodised surface, but the deep black, rubberised operating elements also give you total control over all the functions. The body of the riflescope is made of solid aluminium and is therefore particularly lightweight and stable.

Simple ring mounting

The 30 mm ring mounting system enables the CONQUEST DL riflescopes to be mounted on all rifles in common use. The 30 mm ring mounting system simply offers a wider range of options. It is therefore suitable for virtually all rifles in common use and every type of mounting element.

You can choose between six CONQUEST DL models.

CONQUEST DL 1.2-5x36

With its lightweight construction and wide field of view, the CONQUEST DL 1.2 – 5 x 36 ensures rapid and secure target acquisition at close range. It also has up to 5 x magnification, which means it can be used for more than just moving targets and daylight hunting.

Reticles

Fine reticles in the 2nd image plane

CONQUEST DL riflescopes are available with the non-illuminated reticle 6 and the illuminated reticle 60 for daylight use. In both versions the reticle lies in the 2nd image plane. This means that through the entire magnification range you can rely on a constantly well defined reticle and can change the magnification at any time.

Reticle 60 for CONQUEST DL

illuminated

The fine illuminated dot, suitable for daylight use, can be turned on as needed and has an impressively high light intensity. It can be dimmed precisely, making it suitable for all hunting situations. Its position between the two image planes ensures minimum covering of the target – at 12 x magnification just 0.8 cm is covered at 100 m.

Reticle 6

non-illuminated

The non-illuminated reticle 6 lies in the second image plane, remains constant while changing magnification and is universally useable: The reticle is always clearly visible when taking quick shots at low magnification, yet stays very fine and only covers the target minimally at higher magnifications.

Questions & Answers

Pfeil

Why do the CONQUEST DL models cost less than the VICTORY models?

The CONQUEST DL devices were developed with optimised costs. This way, the assembly times in the Wetzlar factory in particular were reduced. The devices thus have a more simple construction than our more expensive product lines. The choice of equipment and reticle types is also reduced to a minimum: Two reticles are available, but no rail and a simplified ASV. However, no compromises were made in terms of precision and reliability.

Pfeil

Can the CONQUEST DL be retrofitted with the ASV?

Yes, it is possible to retrofit the CONQUEST DL riflescopes with the ASV.

Pfeil

I would like to have the ASV+ respectively ZEISS inner rail. Is this possible for a CONQUEST DL?

The CONQUEST DL riflescopes have been reduced to the basics: Functionality and robustness.

If you would like to have innovative solutions such as ASV+ (bullet drop compensation+), illumination control or special ballistic reticles, we recommend the riflescopes from the VICTORY line.

Pfeil

With such a good price-performance ratio, surely the CONQUEST DL riflescopes are manufactured in the Far East?

The CONQUEST DL riflescopes are manufactured at Carl Zeiss in Wetzlar – in other words, “Made in Germany”.

Pfeil

Why push-button control?

The push-button control was chosen in order to optimise costs and due to the particular simplicity of the concept. Due to the ergonomic aspects, the more expensive rotating dial solution used for the Victory lines remains unsurpassed. This offers superior operating comfort in comparison to push-buttons, but means that customers have to become familiar with the basic concept.

Pfeil

What do the abbreviations mean?

Meaning of the abbreviations

FL
    Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses

GA
    Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour

T*
    ZEISS T* multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility

MC
    ZEISS multi-layer coating (multi coating)

P / P*   
    Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating

B
    Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used

S
    Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation

M
    Riflescope models with ZEISS mounting rail.

iC
    Riflescope with illumination control

ED
    Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations

HD
    High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution

HT
    High Transmission = lenses by SCHOTT with very good transmission properties.
