Hi LB,

I noticed it was shakier right away. I was just using the 7x right before.
However, I did comment to the guy that the image shake didn't seem quite as bad as expected.
I don't think I have...

He said he compared it against the other two and liked it better. He let me take a...

Sigh ... this is typical. Something similar happened after I bought my Ultravid.

Hi Gwen,

If I was able to see the whole FOV with the Euro I may have kept it, but it's hard to say. At around the same time I bought the Viper HD 6x32. I decided I liked the comfortable view of...

I just called Zeiss US service to what they recommend for the stiff focus.
I told them I'd prefer it a wee bit looser.
They said it should loosen up with use over time, but if I'm still not...

I think I'm in the minority here ... I like the look of the old CL much better and I also don't like the thinner, longer barrels on this new version.

It has a sort of astronaut look.
