    Corsican Gen Request

    Nothing really to add, plenty of good advice already. I saw the nuthatch at Bavella and Col de Vergio / Aitone. The warblers I saw mostly in Macquis close to the coast, same for the Finch. Nice place to live and bird :) I'm just back from a family holiday at Cap Corse. Only casual birding, but...

    NL Pure 8x32 and NL Pure 10x32!

    My inital comment was because I was a bit amused by Gijs' apparent conclusion that NL's must be good because people in nature docus on TV have them. Of course I have no proof that all these TV-people are outfitted by Swaro's marketing department (not even knowing which people and TV shows Gijs...

    NL Pure 8x32 and NL Pure 10x32!

    Not much conspiracy but standard marketing practice... Not just TV personalities, but also for example bird tour guides are regularely outfitted by Swaro and other brands.

    NL Pure 8x32 and NL Pure 10x32!

    Well, those people on TV are certainly outfitted by Swarovski. That proves that Swaro s marking is good, if anything...

    New Swarovski 7x Binocular

    Despite all the boast about design, I think that the Leica Ultravid is still the most elegant and well designed compact, by far. However, 7x21 sounds like it could be a real improvement in useability compared to 8x20.

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

    Makes perfect sense, many thanks! And congrats to haveing a chalet with such a view! Nice birding area too! I'm still trying to see Hazel Grouse in Switzerland and sometimes thought about trying this area.

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

    Hi Canip, excellent review as usual. And nice place to test binoculars, must be around Beatenberg? For those who don't know Switzerland: the gorgeous mountains are the famous triple Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The side to side view with the SF is interesting and shows how similar both are...

    Zeiss SF 8x32 vs Swarovski SV 8x32

    Remarkably, Dennis always stays nice and polite, despite recieving a lot of harsh words. Can't remember any angry reply or personal attacks from him. There are certainly worse trolls than him.
