Well, Kumar...first, I don't see the store manager's point in asking you to look at the highest priced binos in the store first-when you were not anywhere near that price range in what you wanted to...

I haven't used my Vanguard ED's on a tripod yet (don't have the adapter yet), but I think it will depend on what weight you are willing to carry afield. But the Vanguard adapter would be a good...

Well then, it's a good time to check it again David, and see if it works or not for you. Doesn't cost much to try! ; )

Hello David, and the others reading this. I have found a new "grip" for me that seems to work better, with less hand tension for me, and I'm able to hold steadier most times with it.

Yes, Mike, it was a good day for me, no doubt! I think if you had a pair of Zeiss FL 7x42's, you would be hard pressed to let them go! Especially since you already know FL's too.

Patudo-yes to all...

Nice story, Mike! Yes, Porros can deliver a great view, no matter the latest tech-but the EII's surely please the eyes compared to earlier versions. I feel your frustrations of the birds fleeing and...

Yes, for me too!

This seems to work best for me too, with the eye cups all the way down, or at least, just out a little, to avoid smudges from fingers or eyelashes, etc. I love the difference in wide open viewing it...

Well, it seems my A/C just needed some time off to recover-it's running OK now-probably just overworked and underpaid! ; )

You stay cool too! At least I don't have to be anywhere out in it!
