CARL ZEISS SPORTS OPTICS EXTENDS CONQUEST SERIES WITH 3-12x56 MC
It is sometimes difficult to improve upon an already exceptional series, but Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has done just that by adding a 3-12x56 MC to its CONQUEST line of riflescopes. The new 3-12x56 MC will incorporate the same award-winning technology of the CONQUEST series, introduced in 2001, and is designed for the shooter who wants a riflescope that performs exceptionally well in low light conditions.
"We are introducing the CONQUEST 3-12x56 MC because our customers have asked for it," states Anthony R. Cataldo, vice president and general manager of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, North America. "This is a natural evolution in the development of a family of CONQUESTS designed to serve the growing needs of the American hunting community and this is only the beginning."
Crisp detail and true color rendition are but a few of the characteristics of this riflescope thanks to the oversized 56 mm objective lens for maximum light transmission at dawn, dusk and in poor visibility conditions. The world-renowned multi-coatings applied to the lenses enhance the clarity by affording truer color and higher contrast. These coatings also offer a higher transmission in the blue range, assuring brighter images and better colors in low light situations.
Accuracy and weight are contributing factors and Zeiss took this into consideration by combining proven technology and industry innovations when designing the 3-12x56 MC. A quick focus eyepiece ensures that the reticle and the image you are looking at are in the same plane providing a crisp, clear and sharp picture without having to move your eye. The riflescope weighs 25.8 ounces.
The CONQUEST 3-12x56 MC also has a scratch-resistant, anodized surface that offers years of protection against rugged use. Guaranteed to be water and dust-proof, the riflescope is subjected to sealing, temperature and shock tests in compliance with the German Environmental Standard DIN 58 390 80 and ISO 9022-80. An industry-leading lifetime transferable warranty insures the performance and function of the riflescope from generation to generation.
As with all Zeiss riflescopes, the 3-12x56 MC is filled with nitrogen to ensure that it does not fog in extreme temperature changes. Additionally, a constant eye relief of 3.2" offers a great degree of safety – even when firing upwards - and a full field of view despite the high magnification.
Available in matte black and stainless colors, the CONQUEST 3-12x56 MC has a choice of the #8 reticle as standard with the #4 and #6 reticles as special order and is currently priced at:
Matte Black $1,049.99 Stainless $1,079.99
