I own the HD in 8X42 and 12X50 new after comparing them to the HD+, no CA for me, MY EYES, so over $1500 in savings. Could not be more happy with them.

Jgraider,

I think you should ask Chuck about them, he had one I believe, and my opinion likely mirrors his and gunuts opinion. I along with Foss agree the build quality was good. I thought the color...

Razor6,

I have the 10X50 BA, UV BR, and the UV HD+, the BR 10X50 has about the same as the BA, but the HD+ to me CA is negligible. Another person who has the HD+10X50 is Canip, perhaps he can...

I would try the HD+ 10X50, it is the one glass that provides SV views with out the flat field/panning/RB issues, but I would try before you buy, at these $$$, highly necessary. Personally I get much...

Thanks for your perspective opinion, I own some of the glass mentioned.

Nothing is guaranteed for life, however if that includes getting a sub-par replacement glass as part of the guarantee one could say so. Nothing against the HG Monarch, but when Nikon said they would...

MkSB,

Perhaps you could also peruse the Hu...ng forums, since they use them. After that you will give up, spend more $$ and get a premier glass. While I like the HG I wonder how it and other mid...

ED,
