I don't know I don't notice too much difference having had Japanese built Vortex's and now a Chinese built Vortex Viper. The Chinese one doesn't seem much different. I can't find a thing to complain...

Patudo. I agree with everything you said. I think just adding extra baffles to the control a small amount of glare is going to compromise other areas of the SV 8x32. That is what the Swarovski...

I just recently compared the newer Vortex Viper HD to several different binoculars at Cabella's in different magnifications. I tried the Leupold BX4 and I didn't think the build quality or optics...

Look at these false pupils in the Zeiss 8x42 FL. Way more distinct than the SV FP 8x32!

Thanks, for the response. I agree the Viper's are the sweet spot in the Vortex line. The Conquest's IMO don't have a lot of contrast compared to other binoculars at their price point and they have a...

Swarovski may have tweaked the baffle design or done a million other small things to the internals or the eyepiece and it would be difficult to see in a photo like that. It could very well be that...

I haven't tried the Noctivid but I hear it is good at glare control. The best I have tried to date as I said were the big 8x56 SLC and 8x56 FL. They are pretty much glare free also. Every time I buy...

I agree with Ceasar on Torview's photo's. There are very few if any binoculars that would not have any glare looking almost directly into the sunset in that situation. That is one of the worst...

I have had both the Vortex Razor and the older Tract. I would go with the new Tract Toric HT 10x42. I think you will be happier.

I would be inclined to go with the Tract Toric HT 10x42 if I had to choose between those three. You should probably try the Nikon Monarch HG 10x42 because it would have the biggest FOV and it is very...

If there is no glare in the newest SV 8x32 FP or it is extremely hard to reproduce as RainStar and Torview say in the above posts how are you going to take a picture of something that doesn't exist?

I think using two eyes with a binocular like the Nikon 20x120 III you can pick up fainter colors. That is interesting that the 20" Obsession wouldn't pick it up. My 10" would never pick it up either.

I would have bought the SV 10x42 on the spot also. It is not FP but it is still a $1500.00 glass for $1K. In my experience Swarovski service is hard to beat. That is part of the reason you pay more...

That's true! With as many binoculars as you have the HG's probably won't see too much sun.

A 10x50 isn't quite an 8x56 for a relaxed view but it is better than a 10x42. Now a 10x56 SLC and then you would have a relaxed view.

You can sometimes find a 7x42 Nikon EDG 2 or a 7x42 Trinovid BN but the 7x42 Zeiss FL is rarer than a California Virgin.
