With the SLC models it has not been reported AFAIK. It has been "reported" that later EL SV models it is less pronounced.



Agreed.

For the small percentage that DO see it...is it debilitating?...

My diopter ring moves from lock to unlock without any click...probably easier than it SHOULD but hasn't seemed to be an issue.

Hi!

The Vortex Viper HD 8X42 IS a nice binocular....you probably can't do a lot better if any for an 8X42 for the money....
