Michael,

After using the 7x more today and comparing the written specs of the 7x and 6x, I've done the only responsible thing and just ordered the 6x as well. The 6x has a much wider FOV ,140m vs...

Mandobear,

The Nikon 7x15s arrived today. Excellent and very useful image for the minute size. In testing to answer your question there is some loss of FOV with my close fitting rimless...

You might try the GEM Kangaroo Grandad compact camera case from gem-bags.com in the UK. it's a nice design and fits the Victory Pocket perfectly. Or a Vortex compact bin case also works...

GAL1LEO,

Cutting to the chase here, based on everything you say, I'll step out over the line. Buy the SV 8x32. If it works for you, and it probably will, you will never regret having spent the extra...

MandoBear,

I should have a pair of the 7x sometime in the next two weeks. My glasses sound the same as yours. My ER / FOV experience is the same as yours on the 8x30 E II. I'll let you know.

Alan and Stan,

I agree with both of you. The Cannon 12x36 IS III is a very under-appreciated binocular IMO. Mine is always handy around the house for quick use. The combination of reasonable size,...

Bob yes your are correct. My memory failed me. Checking today, I do install my EDG horns with eye ups fully down, but that costs me 25%+ of the FOV so they're out of the question for me. It's great...

Andy,

I do love mine. The UVHD+ is the smallest, but not lightest, of the 4 alpha 10x32s. Also without double checking I think it has the smallest FOV but not by much (347' vs 360' for the SW and...
