Victory 10x42 T*FL vs. Swarovski 10x42 EL

I understand that Swaro has better edge sharpness, better customer service.

Zeiss has faster focus, and is brighter, with less precise diopter adjustment. Any other considerations? How good is Zeiss 10x42 T*FL?

Zeiss is not only brighter but has more contrast, less CA etc, see the different threads on this forum. In addition, if you have small hands, like I do, the Swaros simply have barrels that are too large.
