I would buy alpha glass and save up for the trip.

I would not go on an expensive trip with sub-alpha glass, but that's just me.

You aren't looking at the surface of the mirror, you are looking "into" the mirror at the reflected image which appears as far behind the mirror as the object is in front of it.

Among the many things I like about my 10X42 EL SV is the color intensity and contrast, without being artificial.

The ease with which a bird "jumps out" at you when it is sitting still and partially...

I am constantly astonished at how far away I can identify birds I know with my EL SV 10X42. An uncommon gull that I had never seen before, probably not so much.

There is such an incredible amount of...

It means "disrespected" which is used as a verb, which I'm not at all sure it is.

I think it may be an adjective, though.

Bingo!

It might turn out to be not such a good way to save a few dollars.

Not likely with Swarovski, but things happen.

Oh, and Happy Birthday!!

I'm getting confused.

Did she or did she not order Zeiss SF?

If yes, did she get them yet?

If yes, what was her impression of them?

I had a pair of Steiner 15X80, and optically they weren't bad, but mechanically they were junk.

The first time I looked through an 8X32 EL SV, I was absolutely stunned by the view.

However, I cling stubbornly to my 10X42 EL SV, but if I were starting over I might choose differently.
