So really longer length in a binocular does not necessarily mean better optical performance. It is dependent on the optical design. As Henry says because of optical design the SV probably has a...

The MHG does have more eye relief than the EII. In my case with my shallow eye sockets it had too much and I had to hold the binocular away from my eyes to avoid blackouts. So it didn't work good for...

I really believe the issues with my Euro HD 8x32 were caused by the fact that it was a return. I think the binoculars had problems when the first owner purchased them so he returns it and Cabela's...

I don't know if the new CL 8x30 is really an alpha even though it is a Swarovski. I agree 30mm is about as small as I like to go considering low light performance and EP comfort although the older CL...

Exactly. Maven and Tracts are even worse because they are sold direct to the consumer so you can't even try them out at a dealer or store.

Thanks, Andrew. I think the Canon's FOV for a 10x is pretty exceptional with an AFOV of 65 degrees. I know what you mean about the acuity in the Canon 10x42 being ahead of anything. I preferred it...

I would try them both but if you are ordering try the 8x first. It will give you a bigger FOV , more DOF, easier eye placement and most importantly it will be easier to hold steady than the 10x. 10x...

If you want the best birding binocular with the largest FOV the Zeiss SF is it. Instead of criticizing it for all the things it isn't we should appreciate it for what it is.
