I had those! I returned them to Zen Ray and they sent me a free pair. The 2nd pair weren't any good either! I sold them for about $300.00. Those were the good old day's when Zen Ray was a "Big Dog"...

i have used night vision quite a bit and those binoculars really won't help. You are going to need a Generation 2 or above night vision monocular to see much in total darkness. Don't even mess around...

Interesting. But not surprising. A porro almost always has better transmission than a roof. Less glass surfaces to absorb light. I observe the same thing with my porro's Nikon EII and Habicht's....

In my experience the Field Pro strap attachment is quite secure. The velcro fastening system on the case is very secure also. I don't see anyway it could come loose or detach. The 10x50 SV is one...
