I would have bought the SV 10x42 on the spot also. It is not FP but it is still a $1500.00 glass for $1K. In my experience Swarovski service is hard to beat. That is part of the reason you pay more...

I didn't say there was something wrong with your vision if you are not bothered by CA. My point is HD or high dispersion glass which helps control CA has benefits other than eliminating the color...

A lot of people say they don't see CA but even if you don't see it it affects contrast, color accuracy, sharpness and even light transmission when the colors of the spectrum are divergent. When you...

That's true! With as many binoculars as you have the HG's probably won't see too much sun.

A 10x50 isn't quite an 8x56 for a relaxed view but it is better than a 10x42. Now a 10x56 SLC and then you would have a relaxed view.

Chuck. How do you find the CA on the Nikon Premier's? I had a few pairs a couple of years a go and the CA on the edge bothered me without HD glass but I am sensitive to CA. As you said a little on...

You can sometimes find a 7x42 Nikon EDG 2 or a 7x42 Trinovid BN but the 7x42 Zeiss FL is rarer than a California Virgin.

That is true. Allbino's does favor flat field designs because they consider them more optically perfect but not everybody likes them and the RB that bothers some people. I guess their point is Leica...

The 8x56 SLC is special in those ways you describe. It is excellent in low light and does control CA and glare exceptionally well. It has an easy relaxed distortion free view I think due to that big...

I think the BR's and even the Trinovids are the best bargains in the Leica line because I have never seen a lot of difference between them and the Ultravid Plus. Allbino's agree's.

I would take the Tract Toric HD's over the Conquest HD for the same reason jgraider says. One other difference is the Tract IMO had better contrast than the Conquest and that is a big thing for me. I...

Don't you have an 8x56 SLC or 8x54 FL? If you do can you induce glare in either one? I had both of those and it was really hard to induce glare in either. They were much more glare resistant than a...

No. If I didn't like it the return window is still open at Sport Optics. If I did then I would only have ONE binocular! That is scary.

I have both the SV FP 8.5x42 and the SV FP 8x32 and I find the 8x32 has more of the "walk-in view" than the 8.5x42 with a bigger FOV. The SV 8x32 will WOW you more than the bigger glass. Try one.
