Pros
  • Bright, good FOV, sharp, fast focus
Cons
  • A little CA in high contrast, a little finicky in eye placement
Got these as a companion to my Zeiss 8x32 FL T*s and am very pleased with them.

There is a little bit of CA when looking at very high contrast scenes, but nothing that really bothers me too much. The eye placement and getting the right IPD was a little finicky to begin with, but i got the hang of it.

The view is superb - bright (as expected of Zeiss) and works very well in tricky lighting (low light, contrast, etc.

In use, i do not perceive any drop-off compared to the more expensive FL T*, when it comes to optics quality (I am sure there is, but it isnt enough to be significant).

Am very pleased with it.
