Bingo!

It might turn out to be not such a good way to save a few dollars.

Not likely with Swarovski, but things happen.

I'm getting confused.

Did she or did she not order Zeiss SF?

If yes, did she get them yet?

If yes, what was her impression of them?

I would avoid Steiner, but that's just me.

I had a pair of Steiner 15X80, and optically they weren't bad, but mechanically they were junk.

The first time I looked through an 8X32 EL SV, I was absolutely stunned by the view.

However, I cling stubbornly to my 10X42 EL SV, but if I were starting over I might choose differently.

That's another reason I dumped it. It had ~70K miles on it, and that's about the time the air-bag suspension starts to get flaky. Big time money to rebuild the suspension. It wasn't worth it to me to...

Considering the intensity and duration of the light the ophthalmologist shines into your dilated eye during an exam, I tend to think that caution was written by lawyers.
