What model Leica did you get that came with a case like that? I figured I at least one case-type from each of the more recently made Leica's(42mm and up).

For the most part I think the average binocular case that comes with the binoculars is very adequate. Elaborate? No. Some are better than others for sure. Some don't come with a case at all which...

That's exactly where I was going David. I DO bump up the magnification to 10X from the 7/8X I normally use. That helps for sure. I can use the new model SLC 10X56....for sure there is a difference...

So....so far NO one has picked the 4-5%, maybe 6% brighter A-K prism 42mm FL(or HT if you will) over the larger exit pupil S-P prism 50mm SV. So was that mostly because exit pupil size trumps %...
