Sorry, I can see all the previous comments now. I still didn't get much info on the 10x ones, but the 8x info is a reasonable indication. I have been using Zeiss Conquest 8x32s, so i've not been...

Wow, a problem like that with Swarovski! I wonder how it happened, vibration through transit?

I saw on another thread, where you yourself commented David, descriptions of the Hawke Sapphire ED 8x25 and was concerned about the focuser which can be problematic. I also wonder how the hinge holds...

I'd just like to add that the Endeavor IVs still don't have any dielectric coatings like the Sapphires do. Both are very good in their own way and both are made in China I think.

Vanguard Endeavor ED IV

It doesn't look like these VE ED IVs are much of an improvement over the IIs then, so thinking of going for the more expensive Hawke Sapphires which I am guessing is better than the Nikon Monarch 7?
