Mark,

To me staring is what you do when you gaze off into the distance without focusing on anything, regardless of your eye dynamic accommodation.



Sure thing, but he's not saying that. What he's...

That's an excellent choice. Personally I prefer the SV 10x50 for a number of reasons, but the SLC 10x56 is brighter (due to its larger EP and AK prisms) and that's important to you.

Hi Bill,

Another (perhaps less ambiguous) way of saying this: try to focus with your eyes at rest.
That's easier said than done for young people who have an excellent eye accommodation. However the...

Another option would be Zeiss Victory FL 10x56, outstanding binos that can be bought second hand for a price around 1000+$.

I am not sure about that, I have three Swaros and none has this issue; moreover it cannot explain the wear of the corners of the lower hinge. I have recently discussed this aspect with a friend and...

For objects at such a close range there is no question that porros are far from ideal. But for more distant objects have you found any porros that satisfy the remaining criteria?

Henry,

Why is 8 necessary? (all other criteria are pretty obvious).
It eliminates all porros I.

Amazon sells a number of binos with strange specs, such as 100x100, and I wouldn't be surprised if there also is a 42x8 among their offers, but I tell you, you won't be able to handhold it, or even...

So true, Chosun. I love my Victory FL 10x56, and if multiple choices were allowed I would have also ticked the 10x56 box (not only the 10x42 checkbox, for my Victory SF 10x42).

Bill,

Porros have a significantly larger distance between the objective lenses than your IPD. Consequently, a nearby object has a larger parallax when viewed thru a porro than when viewed thru a...

I'll second that, Ed.
Conclusions based on such a small sample (88 voters) are statistically unreliable. Also many people use more than just one pair of binos, depending on the application. The...

I measured the diameter of the Swaro's eyecups: 37-38mm indeed. Most binos, 30mm and larger, have larger eyecups with a diam of more than 40mm.

I believe that Swaro SV/FP 8x32 might work for you, the diameter of the eyecups is about 38mm (from memory). The eyecups of Kowa 8x33 are definitely larger.

A few months ago the WX 10x was 3900$ at B&H, and that was tempting (B&H sold them like hot cakes)! But what would I need a WX 10x for? (I have almost no interest in the 7x)? I own the SF 10x42, FL ...
