To which I can only add that the first production series of the 7x35 (about 6000 pieces) were non-B's. That is, they were designated as such, without the B. I don't know if this was an error or if...

Nothing else? Really?

How about a rain guard? For the original Leitz Trinovid a rain guard had to be bought as an after sales accessory. Even if Leica would take them in production again, would you...

Hi Apus Apus,

What exactly is your problem with the original Noctivid ocular cap? Cut themselves? What do you mean? Might be I understand the problem but I'm not completely certain.

Yes, those older Trinovids are worth 1000 Euro's, but you can easily get them for much less, say between 490 and 750 Euro's.
Have a look at eBay, and don't forget those listed in the UK.

Ah, you seem to own the 9x42 SPWA. How about the flare, glare, ghosting issues in comparison to the 8x36?
And more in general, how's the 9x42 in comparison to the Audubon HR/5?

Binastro,

We agree on the 8x36 SPWA's pros and cons. In 1985 wide angle was probably in vogue, at least Swift must have felt it was, and so Hiyoshi made a four-model SPWA series as well as a...

But of course, we should take measures. With my IPD of 68 the Noctivid's IOD is 68.2 mm. In comparison, my Trinovd 8x32 BA has an IOD of 68.7 mm. Should I see differences in 3-D effect? Now what a...
