I'm not nearly as fussy as some, and I just enjoy using my Swarovski EL SV 10X42, and it always blows my mind how much I can see with them.

I spent quite a bit of time the other day watching the...

I bought a pair of those, based on that review and only replaced them when I discovered that the EL SV could see a bit (but noticeably) better into dark areas from lighted areas.

I use Fujinon 16X70 from my car by resting them on a partially raised window. Mostly for water birds and perched raptors.

Yes, thank you Bill.

A bird was only an example for a general statement. Empty magnification and an optic which simply shows a bigger blob is not my idea of a good optic.

Your point is well taken,...

If you can't see the bird well enough to ID it and it is just a bird-shaped blob, what good are your optics? (or any other-shaped blob)

I'm not sure I agree with that statement.

"Nothing looked good" is not my experience when light is poor. Better optics will still produce decent images under not so good conditions.

I bought a pair of 11X80 and regretted it.

Poor design mechanically, not bad optically.

They would easily resolve Mizar.

You've told us when you don't see it, so can you tell us when you do see it?

You say "when conditions are right" but we don't know what those conditions are.

You aren't looking at the surface of the mirror, you are looking "into" the mirror at the reflected image which appears as far behind the mirror as the object is in front of it.

Among the many things I like about my 10X42 EL SV is the color intensity and contrast, without being artificial.
