Given the recent experience with my own 7x42 UV HD (separate thread), I fear the 3-4 weeks could easily become 10-12 weeks with all the shipping around, various factories...

Thank you, Gijs.

I agree.

I have the 6x18 and the 4x12 and like them, I find the image bright and sharp, and both Zeiss‘ (Zeisses?;) ) are lighter and smaller than the Monovid.

When you do, try to buy from a store with a good return policy - just in case you would not like the Kowa (as you know, everyone‘s eyes and face anatomy are different)

Hi Pat,

my 2 ct - I have both glasses (got the Kowa 10 days ago), for what it’s worth:

They are very similar.
The most notable difference is that the Turmon's image tone is just very slightly warmer than the Docter's (now Noblex), due to slightly different AR coating (see pic: Docter:...
