As I am sure you are aware by now, a little while ago we started a "Deal of the Day" promo. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. Todays deal is on a great Zeiss Binocular that went away for a while..... The Zeiss Conquest 8x40 T* ABK Binocular #524508 was phased out when the Zeiss Conquest HD 8x42 was introduced. The Zeiss Conquest 8x40 T* ABK Binocular #524508 had been selling for $949.99 at the time. We have worked it out with Zeiss to make some more of these that we are offering for only $499.99 A best-in-class solution for those who need brilliant daylight performance, the sharpest, clearest, brightest view, and the best possible twilight performance in a full-sized glass!
