Henry,

I believe Joker9937 was wondering about contacting Zeiss-USA. Btw, can you please free some PM space, I have tried to send you a PM but you have exceeded the quota.

The only thing I can say for sure is that there'll be no Leica Noctuid.

The Nikon Monarch 5 20x56 is another possibility that might tick more of your boxes. I have never tried them but I owned the smaller Monarch 5 12x42 and they were of reasonable quality. I guess you...

Hello Arthur,

I am a bit different: I like the FL 10x32 more than any other 10x32, but when a larger EP is needed and the extra weight associated with it is not a problem, then I prefer my FL 10x42,...

Lee,

I have no doubt that some retailers sell more 32s than 42s of the same brand. The point I was trying to make was that the market for a 32 that's as big as many 42s might be limited (of course...

Thanks for an interesting comparison. I own/owned all four binoculars in your post (except that the Maven was B2 9x45). My favorite for use without a tripod: Zeiss SF 10x42, which is very comfortable...

I own both the FL 8x32 and the SE 8x32 and like them quite a bit (btw, no blackout issues with the SE). I also own the FL 10x32---the only 10x32 alpha binos that have worked for me, really excellent....

I'll ask Lee to delete some of the above posts (you know which ones). Some people might see those posts as fairly minor stuff in the scheme of internet squabbles, but others might find them offending.

Robert:

The B&H also says that the new Nikon WX 10x50 is discontinued. I think they simply mean they are out of stock.
Swarovski Optik does not say that the SLC 8x56 is discontinued.

I don't think they do. They might work for people with an IPD larger than 70mm or deep eye sockets, or both, and even for those people they can be rather uncomfortable. The smaller Canons have...

The price of a new 14x32 is 830.52$, whereas the price of a used 14x32 (from the same seller) is 830.49$---who wouldn't enjoy a discount of 0.03$!?

Seriously, the terrible eyecups of the new Canon...
