News of this leaked locally here in Sheffield last week because the new carbon-fibre component factory being opened by MacLaren just a couple of miles away is making the carbon-fibre optical tubes for this new SV. Using similar technology to that used on the upwards-opening doors on MacLaren sports cars, the focus wheel can be cranked somewhat to the left side or right side according to your preference or fitted with an optional wheel sized for those who always use two opposing fingers.
And of course the name Extreme Baffling has nothing to do with any of CJ's contributions on BF.

Haha ! ..... actually the 9x45 SVEB is already superceded ---- the new carbon fibre 9x50 SVHTFLEWAPB (Super Valkyrie High Transmission Fluorite Extra Wide Angle Perfection Baffle ) is the one everyone is waiting for!!

To change the subject slightly, do people just insure their binoculars under the house insurance or take out a separate policy?

Would think that house/contents insurance would cover the binoculars, but thankfully have never tested that.
Here in the US, it is costly to file a claim, as your future rates are adjusted to reflect it. That is why for example most solvent drivers will prefer to settle privately, it is cheaper that way.
A separate policy for binoculars seems unlikely, as the item value is too low and the usual claims, for loss or theft, are best covered under a broader umbrella policy.

Yeah, that's what I thought. I'll check out my house policy today. I couldn't afford something happening to it.
Thanks

Thanks Chuck, I'm absolutely delighted with my new buy. I couldn't be happier. Well, not unless someone got me a new scope as well!

House insurance normally covers the structure and/or the contents while they are within the house. Often if you want items to be insured away from the home you can use an extension to your policy called 'all risks' or something similar. Items above a certain value need listing individually. For a couple of binos and a camera this type of cover is quite convenient but if you have several pairs of binos, several cameras and lenses, a lap top etc you might want to go to a specialist such as Glover and Howe.

You are very close to the answer. Chosun is fun to figure out, and looking for
quality.
The Nikon Monarch HG is the one.
