    Swarovski sellers dilusional?

    In an effort to bring the topic back on track I found a seller that has a very realistic grasp on pricing ;)

    NL 10x32 Snapshot Adapter

    Nobody tried the old EL adapter on the NL? Any suggestions then for an alternative method that doesn't rely on the i-phone?

    Can anyone advise if there is a snapshot adapter for the NL 10x32 please?

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    Whilst on a walk in the lakes on Thursday I saw (in order) Red Squirrel, Roe Deer, Wheatear, Red Deer, Peregrine stooping at pigeons, young dipper being fed by Mother, Ringed Plover all within a ten mile walk in Ullswater.

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    An epic battle between two squirrels that ended up with one of them falling into the lake. The sodden squirrel resembled a rat when he made land. A lovely way to christen my NL's.

    If you could have only ONE binocular ? (no list).

    EL 10 x 32. A wow a day!

    Giant Binoculars at Caerlaverock

    The times I have gone up the tower and looked through those. I'd stick with my EL 10 x 32's though

    Did changing to a lighter 32mm over 42mm bino really make that much difference?

    At Christmas I purchased some new EL10x42 already having the EL10x32. I still haven't taken the 10x42 out of the box, the 32 is the bino of choice every time. So comfortable, light and ergonomically superior to the 42's.

    Frontier Ed x issues?

    My warranty replacement pair of EL's came with the draw-string bag last week. I wouldn't use that for my tent pegs. A few days later they sent me the wild-nature bag that I had purchased with the original ones. I keep watching ebay for a pair of Frontiers to keep in the car.

    Frontier Ed x issues?

    I had the 10x 32 and 10 x 42 ED-X. Very impressive optics and excellent value for money and mechanically just superb. I understand there's now a no quibble warranty too. Are my EL's £1300 better, no chance.

    Warranty Turn-around time

    Swarovski are sending me a replacement case. Very easy resolution, all is well.

    Warranty Turn-around time

    I will see what Swarovski's response is to the email I sent yesterday. I hadn't given it much thought as I won't use a case but when I see they cost £50 I felt a bit short-changed. I'll report back when they respond. The chap at Ace felt a bit awkward when he explained the case wasn't included...

    Warranty Turn-around time

    But I already paid for a case with the original binoculars. This pair is a replacement for a faulty pair.
