Welcome to Birdforum.

Take a look on the underside of the frame near the left hand tube. Open the binocular up, and it is right there.
Typically a letter E followed by a 9 digit number.

This Meopta discussion leaves me confused. I do know the Meostar models are good, but not
great. The 10x50 model I had left much to be desired.

I think this issue is usually about how the binocular fits your face. Some users have deeper eye sockets,
and some don't. This does get back to eye relief and how it relates to each person, and how...

These are both good binoculars, and so there are personal preferences in

The armor is a very small part of a binocular, and any changes are not always better.

Good advice here so far, but make sure you can go to a shop where you can try a few models

That is normal wear for the EL, it is of no concern, just cosmetic, Swarovski service does not repaint
those areas.
This is a common practice among all makes, AFAIK.

That looks way too bulky for normal binocular use. A specialist thing, seems better suited for a mounted binocular.

Take the FL, the 10x42 is much better to lug around. You will not miss much if anything.

You know you must rotate binoculars occasionally or one of them might feel slighted....:-O

I will chime in here, the 10x35 is easier to handle because it has longer barrels. The 8x30 EII is a very short, squat binocular. If you do a search,
