    Swarovski habicht 7x42

    Yes, I find the focus wheel travel okay. Birding with the Habicht ist not very comfortable but possible. In normal use you have not focusing very much. The focus is also very good on point. The sharpness snaps hard in. I personally focus with 2 fingers with the Habicht. For me the focus is no...

    Swarovski habicht 7x42

    I bought a new Swarovski 7x42 in black back in August. My main bino is a NL 8x42. It is a big difference in Focus Smoothness and field of view. 😀 But! With the 7x42 you have not focus so much. 7 time magnification has much more sharpness in depth. And I find the focusser is not really stiff. In...

    Habicht 10x40

    Is the Black Version from The Habichts Leather? Or is it a Plastic with leather Style? My 7x42 feels very Rubbery in Hands.

    It’s May!—has anybody bought/tried out a NL Pure 32 yet?

    In my 8x42 the Eye Placement is very sensitive! On the 4th click stop there are no blackouts but some glare. On the third stop of the Eyecups there is no glare but some Blackouts. So I use the Headrest with the third stop. There is no glare and no Blackouts. I think Swarovski sells the Headrest...

    How would the Guys compare the 8x32 NL to the 8x42 NL? Picture Quality, and Weight? Is there a big Difference from the Weight when hanging on the Neck?

    It’s May!—has anybody bought/tried out a NL Pure 32 yet?

    I tried yesterday the 10x32. The Fov is amazing. The Handlong too. Also sharpness and clearity. The clearity is the same effect than from my NL 8x42. But not the Contrast. The Contrast on my 8x42 is higher. Dont know is it the smaller pupil from the 10x32 vs my 8x42 or is it the 32mm...

    How tight is NL Pure's rubber armour

    Just use it.... and send it to Swaro when the Problem comes. I think this is only from Hand Sweat. Because there is no other thing who can damage my Rubber on my Binos. I take much Care of my Binos. But i use it every day. It can not be a specific Problem with my use, because My Dialyts are all...

    How tight is NL Pure's rubber armour

    I bought the NL in January. The temperature was at this time -10 degrees here in Austria. And the Armour was at this time tight. Now, with the warmer weather comes this gap. Also on the Zeiss SF 8x42 (the grey Version) it is the same. Think this is still normal
