Interesting I have never heard of an eyecup sealing up too well but I had the same fogging problem using those Field Optics winged eyecups.

What are you getting me for Christmas? A new Leica Trinovid 7x35 would be nice. It would certainly aid British American relations.;)

Like it or not one thing that will be unique about the new Leica Trinovids is that they will probably be the only new $1300.00 Roof Prism binocular on the market that ISN'T waterproof. They probably...

I agree with 45northmt. They could have retained the optical qualities you liked in the older classic model and at least made them waterproof. That means they are possibly exposed to dust and other...

What is interesting to me is this "Optical Box" on the new CL 8x30. I have never experienced a binocular that has such a wide range of focus. You can change your eye position a LOT without...
