I've tried the Canon 10x42L IS WP several times, but the 16mm eye relief always turned out to be a deal breaker. Those who use prescription eyeglasses owe it to themselves to evaluate this aspect...

Joost,

Let's settle this. I did not "present only one side of the argument" in my original post. The sole reason for attaching the Segalstad article was to show that there is ongoing scientific...
