Allbinos review of the HD 10x42

As pointed out by several other members, Allbinos has posted a review of GPO HD 10x42:
http://www.allbinos.com/index.php?art=173
I take exception of their comment on CA: the sample that I reviewed controls CA quite well. On the other hand, I agree with their finding that the FoV is probably smaller than 6.4*---I did not measure it exactly, but it seemed slightly smaller in an empirical comparison with other binos.

It is also odd that they describe the CA issue as 'serious' in the body of the review but then say the GPO was only a 'tad' worse than the competition in the summary.

I think the bins mentioned in the comparison are all close around 7 when it comes to CA (according to Allbinos) and thus not top notch in the area. So I guess slightly lower than that could be expected. Perhaps 6:ish. Probably OK for most people but not for those sensitive to CA (including myself).
