Have not had a chance to look through the SP's, but did check out the Conquests.There is a notceable difference in the size of the occular lense on the 10x40s compared to the 12x45s. The 10xs are also a lot stouter feeling pair of binos,( I believe they weigh close to 8 oz more than the 12x45s) probably why they cost $300 dollars more than the 12x45s.I would have to assume the 10x40s would gather much more light at dusk and dawn.Clarity and contrast seemed pretty good compared to Minox and Kahles, couldn't tell much difference amongst the group.I would have liked to have looked through a pair of SP's for comparison, but the distributor didn't have any on hand.I have been very satisfied with my Pentax products in the past.
You can't shoot what you can't see.So why bother with crummy optics!

SP's hands down! The Conquest binoculars are not up to typical Zeiss quality, which is somewhat surprising because the Conquest rilfescopes are fantastic glass for the money.
