I am not too worried about this change, as mentioned Nikon has changed their warranty before.

Now, the warranty is like most companies, a limited lifetime warranty.

Sometimes the correct diopter position is tricky, and also some peoples
eyes are not up to the task.

So considering all of this, we may sum this up to personal opinion.

You are mentioning the topic of optics that need supporting, and that is not a question of weight,
but is all about the magnification. Typically optics of 15X need tripod support, a 12X will...

Ranging binoculars are made for ranging shooting distance with rifles, for target shooting, or hunting, and not birding.

That is common knowledge.

I have not compared them side by side. I do really like this Meopta, so include it in your choices.

Value and performance are important. ;)

It seems that there was very little in new product introductions this year at Birdfair.

Maybe as mentioned by someone, we have reached a plateau in sports optics.

I would not be too anxious about the warranty, even though they may state 10 years. Swarovski will support for many years beyond that, Zeiss does very well, and Leica is doing better.
