    Thoughts on 10x32 EL Fieldpros

    Thoughts on 10x32 EL Fieldpros

    After having issues with my Leicas, traded them in for these Beauties, apart from weight issues with 10x42s, i am so pleased, Crystal clear, Tack sharp, Velvet smooth focussing, easier to hold for a sustained period, i've hopped between Leica and Swarovski pretty regularly over the last 25 yrs...
