Hello rdnzl,

I was out using a coated version of the Zephyr 7x35, this morning. For a very old binocular, it worked well. Some would complain that its close focussing distance was not short enough...

Hello Ed,

Doug sold me four binoculars and never gave me a hat! Maybe buying a Zeiss or a Meopta did not put me over the bar.

Hello Ed,

Doug did not quote any source, so perhaps he was speaking from his own business experience. Of course, the biggest "game" in New York is the Norway rat. When Cameraland was located on...

Hello Jerry,

The same was told to me by Doug at Cameraland, in NY. Doug also told me that hunters respect bird watchers opinion of optics.

Hello,

I am late to this discussion but I would point out that close focussing became practical with roof prims glasses, as the spatial displacement of most Porro glasses made close focussing more...

Hello Andy,

I just visited the web site of a well known American vendor and none of those is listed, nor is any EDG model listed, not even as a special order.

Hello LucaPCP,

I have used the Zeiss 8x32 FL for at least fourteen years. I never used the bag. If you like to cary a small memo pad or notebook, the bag should hold the glass and the...

Hello Yarelli,

I sold my Nikon 8x30 EII after buying a Zeiss 8x32 FL, a sale I regret. I found the Zeiss just less delicate than the Nikon and I have become a bit clumsy as I age. However, I...

Hello,

After evaluating specifications, I go by the totality of the glass. If it fits my hand, provides a pleasing image with no annoyances, I get it.
