Hello Bob,

I have a very late model, purchased after the FL line was announced. It has rather long barrels, suggesting a long focal length which supresses chromatic aberration. The 7x42 Fl uses...

Hello Bob,

Yes. That Austrian binocular is simple and robust. A simple eyepiece, with few elements helps provide high transmission but at the cost of the FOV of oculars with more elements. It is...

Dry spell

Hello,

There is a gray variety of the brown creeper, which is a rather small bird. I have no feeling for scale in the photo.

Hello,

Leitz had made a point of emphasizing contrast in their photographic lens designs. This may have been to distinguish its products from those of competitors.

Hello Alexis,

Hello Golden Bear,

I think that your NIB Fl may prove to be a bit handier: smaller and lighter.

Hello Pluto,

Are you writing of a particular 7x42 mm or about 7x42 mm binoculars in general?
Yes, the choices for a new one is rather poor.
