Denco, because 3% difference is not obvious. Will 8x56 meopta will be a lot brighter than EL 8.5x42 because of 55% more light entering into the binocular? Will the difference be noticeable only when my eyes are dilated more than 5mm ?
So All you guys are saying that even 91% light transmission of Swarovski will be beaten by 88% light transmission of Meopta? If yes , then my other question is that will SLC 8x56 with 93% light transmission be a lot brighter than Meopta or will they be close?
Yes when I say eyebox it means what you refer to as transparency where you feel the view is easy on eyes, natural and like there is no glass between eyes and the object in focus. When I compared NL to noctavids/ultravids, I got the same view.

I have the pre 2016 version and wanted to trade in for field pro version. Does this mean my...
I saw slc 8x56 in a store I really like to eyebox and that’s it. Where is the wow effect!???
They did not have 10x56 in store to compare.
Which bingo will give brightest 3D view with wow effect?
My el 12x50 has wow effect! I don’t like my 2015 el 8.5x42 anymore!
