You have more will power than I do!
Chuck. You are a real asset to Bird Forum! It is really helpful to have member that has such a wide range of binoculars and uses them in the field. It is nice to have somebody that has the motivation and ability to acquire the latest binoculars like the Nikon MHG and Leica Noctovid and then describe their strong points and weak points and then describe how they perform in the field. That is extremely helpful to the rest of us because we may not be able to try all these binoculars. Then you make it more interesting with all your pictures comparing the sizes of the different binoculars. You write in a knowledgeable but more common sense style that everybody understands. We have many members on Bird Forum that are very knowledgeable about optics but few that have the all the latest models at their fingertips. Most of your reviews are right on and I pick up a lot of information from them. Keep up the good work. I enjoy your posts.

Sometimes it is hard to go by the reviews although they can tell you if you should try a binocular. In the end you have to try it yourself. The new Swarovski 8x30 CL could be a really nice compact birding binocular.

Agree with you there ... I take all reviews with a grain of salt, but I do enjoy reading them.

The reviews kind of tell you which binoculars are worth trying. The Nikon MHG's are good binoculars but once I tried them they did not work for me.
