I like it! That's a heck of a deal! You need a nice 7X binocular! ;)

I sure wouldn't mind having one myself... I probably wouldn't use it more than the UVHD+ 7X42, even though optically the EDG...

Great to hear a report of someone actually looking at birds thru their binoculars! Here, here! ;)

Nice write up Justin!

I've always actually liked that binocular over the FL 8X32. It's a great binocular. Focus a little stiff as you say, otherwise really no issues! Meopta makes good stuff for...

I don't think most will miss the SV view compared to the SLC view. I even used the SLC 8X42 YESTERDAY....I have to say the view is certainly among the best. Add to that the larger EP of the 42mm,...

Absolutely no reason. It's a good binocular. The added FOV is a bonus for a birder. The Monarch 7 8X42 is also very lightweight. I'd probably lean towards a Vanguard Endeavor ED II/IV but weight...

Since you HAVE the 8X32 SV....size IS somewhat important to you.... I'd so go with a 10X42 SLC. It's a no brainer. The SLC is really a top level binocular.
