Don't forget stabilisation does not need to rely on electronics. The Zeiss 20x60S and the 20x60S Mono have a mechanical stabiliser that works very well indeed.

Nice. Very nice, actually. I've got one of those as well, unfortunately on mine the coatings on the eyepieces is damaged, on both eyepieces, so it isn't mint at all. I've also got the model with the...

Take your time ... :t: I remember the first few times I used my partner's G80 with a long telephoto, and the results weren't pretty. Getting used to a camera always takes time.

No, that's not quite right.

I heard from my dealer today that they expect the Trinovids in early December. They will NOT only be sold through the Leica Stores.

You're right, as usual. However, why then did the weight of the 7x35 increase by 40gr, and why did they cut down on the field of view? It will be interesting to see some detailed drawings of the new...

This is not correct. The choice of prisms *does* matter. SP are the worst choice among relevant roof prism designs (SP, AK and Uppendahl). Check the relevant literature, e.g. Merlitz 2019.

I agree. Only two things I don't like about the 8x32 HGL: It's a bit on the heavy side, and the focuser is a wee bit too fast. But that focuser is still just about the best focuser in any of my...

I often use my ED50 with the 16x/24x/30X MC rather than any of the other eyepieces because I really like the view a lot. In many situations the magnification is enough, especially in woodland.

Same here - I'll also wait for the first reviews. I don't expect great AF-C performance though. Not yet. However, if it's at least a bit better than the Z6 it would be good enough for me.

Sounds like the most likely explanation. The setting should be AF-On only, otherwise the camera focuses (again) when you press the shutter button.

IMO getting rid of the zoom would be a bad mistake. There are plenty of situations where you need all the magnification you can get.

If you ever find one of the wideangles at a decent price, get it. Even the old 20x for the 60mm Fieldscopes is pretty good. My most used wideangle on the ED82 is the 16/24/30x. Actually, it's my most...

Really? I couldn't care less if it has IBIS or not. On the contrary, IBIS is just another component that may fail. For bird photography I need high shutter speeds anyway, and for everything else VR...

The Gitzo 2180 works fine with the Nikon EDIIIA. No problems at all, and I've been using two for quite a few years now. I wouldn't use the 2180 with heavier scopes than the EDIIIA though.

Not necessarily, at least not IME. The old Zeiss 10x50 with its Erfle eyepieces and its ~74 degree AFOV (130m at 1000m) works pretty well for me. Not sharp at the edges, of course, but good enough to...

I've been using a mixture of isopropanol and purefied water (1:1) for well over 40 years.
