If that happens you might be better of not telling about it.

Knowing me I'd likely make a long detailed thread about it referencing CA, FOV, and Twilight Factor to legitimize it.

However like I said I have nothing against anyone here whether I agree with them or not. And sometimes I agree with what Dennis says. But that comment I made was in jest and in fun. I wasn't coming down on Dennis even if he perceived it that way. But that's not what his reply was really about anyway.

I'd like to get a look at those bins he keeps talking about. I'm going to have to make a trip sometime to find some and look through them and see if I can see what all the fuss is about. I'll tell you they better give me an orgasm or I'll be pretty disappointed.
Here's your chance Black Crow!

They are EDG I's but the optics are the same.

Why would I buy one before I've looked at one and handled it? It's not like risking a couple hundred at most and even when I've done that it's been based on an overwhelming amount of support and agreement by many many others here that it is a true best buy. Dennis, the real problem I have in conversing with you here at the is forum is that you never seem to pay attention to what I'm telling you on my end of the conversation. If you aren't listening then we aren't communicating.

Black Crow,

Take the seller up on his invitation to ask some questions. This is a remarkable price!

I don't know if these will give you your orgasm but if my experience with my 10 x 32 EDG which I have owned for a year and a half means anything, the only 8 x 32 you will get as good as these at the price offered will be a Nikon 8 x 32 SE. My 10 x 32 EDG gives my 10 x 42 SE a run for the money!

Sounds good but I'm not going to. Since November I've spent $1367.00 on optics. Nine pair of bins and one spotting scope with tripod. I'm very content with my 8x32 Sightrons and I've barely gotten to know my other bins. I'm sure someone else here will jump on them if they are that good of a deal. Down the road, who knows?

Like Ceasar says take a chance. If you don't like them(doubtful) you can always resell them on E-bay for a profit.

What you are saying is the EDG is probably the best roof in the world because we know without a doubt the 10x42 SE is the best 10x porro right. If it it close to the SE in your eyes that is saying ALOT!

And if anyone is even taking a moment to compare a "CPOS" $180 bino with the EDG, that says even more about the sub-$200 bino.

Bickering which $1800 bino is best is one thing, but a bino that costs 1/10th even being in the conversation is mightily impressive.

Agreed. The Sightron is an awesome bargain and the optics are amazing for the price. Best I have ever seen for the money. Frank is right on these.

I generally join/lurk on forums to research a potential purchase. My experience - be it electronics or speakers or whatever - is that you need to take time to get to "know" the regulars. You must decide for yourself who's opinions/statements are worth taking seriously and which to take with a grain of salt. I am interested in the EDG - albeit the 8x42's and have decided to wait and see what Zeiss comes out with in March. My take away from Dennis' posts are the comments on the "balance" of the EDG. A couple of weeks back, I tried FL's, SV's and EDG 1 all in 8x42. The EDG 1 felt the best to me - unfortunately, I do not have a place close that has the EDG 2. So....at FWIW, an unsolicited comment about the balance has merit for me. Just my 2 cents on a contentious thread.
