Cmon Charles, I'd even go as far as doing a swap on my beloved 0x48's
See attached photo's.

Specs are:
0x48, or for the pedantic 1x48
Close focus ( depends on operator ), 1cm up
Weight, Very light, virtually no neckstrain.
Cost, almost priceless
.
No Sh*t, I'm on a roll, another one coming soon

Tried some new bins while I was out and the most expensive ($1000) had a less impressive view than my ZR ED 1!

It would be great to take a new ZR binocular on my next trip to the Lower Rio Grande Valley - all the better to spot the elusive N. Bearless Tyrranulet!

A long, long, way to go for the Primes. There might be a Vista due quite soon though.

No later than the 14th is what Charles said. I wondered if he had the 1000 post target in mind given the number choosing scheme. Who knows!
