    SF grey > black changes and also colour/handling/balance thoughts

    Have you directly compared them to SF ?

    SF grey > black changes and also colour/handling/balance thoughts

    I don’t see real life through my eyes as (vivid) most of the time, only under certain circumstances, I find the SF to be far more (true to life) than any of the four SV models I owned. I’m probably going to have to order a pair of NL in for a direct comparison to see what the buzz is about.

    SF grey > black changes and also colour/handling/balance thoughts

    A lot of the (new reference standard) observations with the Noctovid and NL seem to be based mostly on the dark contrast and vivid colors, does the ultra dark contrast affect detail in shadow areas like one sees when you turn the contrast up on an image with an editing program, my experience...

    SF grey > black changes and also colour/handling/balance thoughts

    Thanks for the great response, I thought my 10X50 SV had a (technicolor) presentation in comparison to the more neutral view of the SF, so I’m sure I would see the NL as similar or even more technicolor, not necessarily a bad thing if you like a more vivid than real life view.

    Did you see any difference between the two in the presence of CA in the middle and edges under varying conditions ? Thanks

    SF grey > black changes and also colour/handling/balance thoughts

    This is copied and pasted from my post yesterday that has so far gotten zero response. It’s not an exact response to your post, but it hits on some of what you’re talking about in a roundabout way. Any buzz pertaining to the SF has pretty well fizzled since the release of the Noctivid and now...

    Does the SF have a Dull, Low Contrast image ?

    Any buzz pertaining to the SF has pretty well fizzled since the release of the Noctivid and now the NL Pure, I have read a few opinions indicating the SF view in comparison to those two is lacking in contrast and color. When I look through my SF I see a crystal clear, extremely bright view that...

    Still tickled to death

    I moved the reviews to (Others), I think the videos taken with his camera phone are somewhat useful, while the camera lens I’m sure introduces its own artifacts, it also seems to fairly readily show most of the differences between models that people describe. Whether those differences make for a...

    Alpha Video Reviews

    These may have already been posted somewhere on here, and I don’t know how useful the information is, but he’s entertaining.

    In two different forums.

    CA control in the NL Pure and SF

    I ended up with the Zeiss 10X42 SF-(gray model), mostly because I could see far more CA in the 10X50, 10X42, and 8.5X42 SV model’s then I cared for, the view was basically superb, but the CA was a deal breaker for me. The SF, to my eyes has excellent CA control, in the center practically none...

    Is got an amazing view, just a small FOV, and a little too much CA, overall VERY GOOD though.

    I have a pair of Minox BD10X44BP Porro that I leave laying out for a quick view on occasion.
