The Euro HD 8x32 is quite a nice binocular especially for the sale price of $399.95. It really reminds of the Swarovski SV 8x32 except it has a smoother focuser and better flare control. Optically and quality wise they are very close. I just had the Nikon 8x42 MHG's and in my opinion these are superior optically and build quality wise and at 1/2 the price of the MHG's they were a great bargain. The eye cups are nice but a little smaller than an average binocular. You have to just rest them lightly on your eye sockets and try not to thrust them deeply into your eye sockets or you will get blackouts but the Nikon 8x30 EII is the same way only it has slightly bigger eyecups. I compared it to my Nikon 8x30 EII and I agree with Holger Merlitz's review except I thought the EII handled flare a little better than the Euro although both were very good so here is the link to his excellent comparison review between the two. The Euro HD 8x32 was Outdoor Life's Editor's Choice in 2014.
