OK, a couple of things here, I quoted your post so I could keep things in order. The edges of the UHD and the Maven are equally sharp.

As to the Vortex warranty, it comes down to having a binocular or its remains to send to Vortex for warranty repair/replacement. Vortex will replace much I don't think they should. For example,...

Rico,

The skepticism is directed at the formula, at least at the notion of a complete version. It seems if it is to be simple it won't prove much. Taking it with a grain of salt is what I'm doing....

Rico,

One of the problems I see with your posts is a seeming contradiction which does not help with understanding. Points one and two, quoted above seem to me to be illustrative. Point one says...

It seems to me that, while a reliable formula for this "luminous power", provided it can meet laws of physics, might be an interesting educational undertaking, it seems to me to actually prove...

Never tried a 25x70 either, but I have good Pentax 20x60. Being dazzled because it is too bright is not an issue. Being useful on a tripod is also not an issue. Using it handheld as a binocular...

Rico,

The English language can be strange even for native speakers. In the portion of my post you quoted, I used the word effect, which means to cause change. That is my mistake, I should have...

This whole thing has gotten way out of hand and off track. You don't know if you are in this chromatic aberration thread, or whether we are in the magnification and move vision thread.

Lee, tenex,

That is not the contradiction. You opened the post saying basically personal choice/opinions are irrelevant. You close by saying they are fundamental.

Is there not a contradiction here? Maybe the translator is not quite accurate, which seems to be a problem with Rico's posts.

OK, AP's post above begs a question. I don't doubt that higher magnification and resolution are pretty well joined at the hip. However, it seems to me that if you compare an 8x42 and a 10x42 of the...
