Edmund,

Nicely summarized.

The 10X40 Habicht looks like a nice glass, but since I already have the Nikon SE 10X42, and I do not go out in the rain to observe nature,.. like today, all is good.

Chuck,

That would depend if you were to keep the glass indefinitely, if so, I would buy local.

I think Nikon has sold it's share of glass, so I really don't think they care what we think.

Joachim,

Thank you for that valuable info, I was on the fence, but now off. It seems like the manufacturer using the German heritage/name and selling an outsourced item.

Thanks Bob for that post, perhaps that is why I love using them (LX/EDGs) during the daytime under sunny conditions. To my eyes they are a pleasure to view under bright conditions.

Kevin,

Yes the MHG is a nice glass, I also use the 8X42 often. At least Nikon MHG owners know that at least for now, they will get serviced or replaced (as I had one with a wondering diopter).

I think there are few on here homers who favor the green, and that's fine. I have a few EDGs and a few SVs, both have their +s and -s. I prefer my EDG 8 and 10X42s over any glass in those formats, to...

Ebay has the KF 8X32 Fujinon roof on sale for $70.00, there are 5 left. I offered $60 and have one coming.
Essentially the same glass as the Sightron Blue-sky 8X32.
