I'm afraid I don't know the binos you mention, but I recently got a Bushnell Legend M Series 10x42, and I'm very impressed. There is an 8x42 version, and I think it is heavily discounted by lots of...

It also baffles me that some high-end manufacturers don't baffle their barrels with better baffling, when Nikon could do it in the SE that cost around 450 euro. It gets my goat, I'm not...

I had almost the same experience once with two binos in challenging light, SV and SE, both 8x32. The SV showed so much veiling that I couldn't see the tree, the SE showed a Pied Flycatcher sitting...

I wonder actually if far more porros are sold than roofs? Birders aside, and maybe hunters too, are most binocular buyers actually buying porro or reverse-porros? The astronomy-type binoculars made...
