I believe that if you tilt the bino upward, as you say above, you are looking thru the upper part of the EP, not its lower part. In fact this is what I do to avoid glare in the lower part

I have experienced the same effect with some binos, and I still believe it's due to a combination between bino's field curvature and my eye astigmatism.

I believe that would be true only for some forms of regular astigmatism, but not for oblique or irregular astigmatism.



That's an interesting possible explanation. I'll try to test it as...

Do you know if you have astigmatism? Astigmatism is the usual suspect for this kind of behavior.

Canip/Pinac:

Many thanks for your detailed review! The huge eyecups (49mm in diameter!) and the smallish dioptric compensation range are deal breakers for me. In an earlier post I had predicted that...

I think the MHG 8x42 comes pretty close: EP=5.25mm, FOV=145m and W=660g. In addition it's an 8x, and it's waterproof. That being said, I am also tempted to try the "new classic" Trinovid. However I...

My experience is that the focuser gives in after a few days of use and becomes quite fluid/smooth. If I may ask, where did you find the FL 8x32 for 1000Eur?
