Review - Zeiss Terra 8x42

I found a recent review from Binomania, on the newly restyled Terra
binoculars. There are a few changes, including color options, a furnished
case and observed changes to the optics.

Well, I stand by my comment, you put a big jab on Leica, that was not called for.

So, I called you out on that. That is what it was all about, I felt it was unfair to the company.

I bit on this one, back when EO was closing things out. It is not real good, and has nothing
in common with the Leupold Yosemite or Kowa porros in this size.

I will offer my thoughts, if looking for a replacement, consider the Zeiss Terra 8x25, it is very
good, offers a bright and sharp view and has a more comfortable view that any 8x20 models.

This is a very good point. Going with 8X, is the way to go for low light.

With quality optics, just do the math, it is all about the size of the exit
pupil. Just divide the objective...

A very nice review, and it seems the small exit pupil of a 10x32 is important in this model as well as it
is in any binocular. Ergo's are important also, so it is hard to move beyond that.
