Another great testament to the 10x42 Nocts, Whilst at the Two Barred Greenish warbler 'Twitch yesterday again the superb optical performance and the Clarity of view were shown at their best, in very poor light conditions, the ease of use and ability to make the view seem super bright, the said Warblers and Firecrests just 'popped'.......just saying

I believe that that's what's next on their list. In fact I think it's a certainty - it's only a matter of time (which is what you were wondering )

I'm sure they'll be worth the wait.

Almost Sage like - Everything you wrote has indeed come to pass. Those indented divots have plumped back out very nicely.

Me too. Played around with the 8x42 Noctivids for half an hour and they are really fantastic. Probably the best 8x42s. But the view is much steadier with my 7x42 Ultravids.

1. Magnification Purchased (8 or 10): 8x42

2. Months Owned: 11

3. Price Paid: 2120 Euro, christmas rebate

4. Brick and Mortar Purchase Or Internet: Internet

5. Name of Company: ATELIER RIETER GMBH

6. Your Level of Satisfaction With Retailer: 10/10 I love making business with germans. Awesome "Keine problem"-attitude

7. Your Level Of Satisfaction With Your Noctivids (any plans to re-sell): 10/10 Im not selling

8. Were There Any Specific Expectations The Noctivids Failed To Achieve For You: I expected the best and got the best

9. Were There Any Unexpected Ways In Which The Noctivids Exceeded Expectations: The vividness/ aka the "leica-pop" really is amazing.

10. Your Primary Use or Uses: Hunting, leisure birding

11. Warranty Issues or Dissatisfactions With Your Noctivids: Not that im aware of.

12. Are Your Noctivids Now Your Go-To (Primary) Binoculars: Yes, its the only binocular I use.

13. If Your Noctivids Are Now Your Primary, What Binocular(s) Did They Replace: modern Swarovski Habicht 7x42

14. Regarding The Noctivid's Alleged 3D Effect, Does It Really Exist, Or Is It More Likely A Bad Case of Internet Hysteria: The depth of field is quite good, especially for a roof prism binocular. The resolution, contrast, brightness and color fidelity is world class. The Noctivid has no field flattener lens and all these parameters combined makes what I like to call "the leica pop". Its best noticable when viewing objects just a few meters away. I can sometimes experience the alleged 3d effect when I study these objects.

15. What Other Alpha Binoculars Do You Currently Own: None, but I have used Zeiss SF 10x42 alot.

16. Other Comments: I love my Noctivid :-)
