Thanks for the great review Canip! Very thorough I thought! There's not going to be much left for me to say about the 7X35!

I'd sure prefer the Swarovski EL 8.5X42 in your case. I'd sure not want a 10X42 as my primary birding binocular. That's EXACTLY why I use the 8.5X42 so much. When I want a little more than 8X but...

Will an 8X30 be bright enough for an every day binocular?

ABSOLUTELY! It's rare for me to find an 8X30 lacking for almost any birding situation.

I've also had no problem with ER or any other...

That's all true. I DO ride a Harley and not a Ducati and do own a Jeep Wrangler so I'm all ready pretty Retro! The Retrovid would provably fit right in!

Hi,

I have a Zeiss Conquest HD 10X42 as David mentioned. A VERY nice binocular. It generally does all the right things and has more FOV than the average 10X42. I can certainly recommend it. I...

Hello,

My opinion....

Since you have TWO 8X binoculars all ready, I'd probably just go for the 10X56 Swarovski. I have the Swarovski 10X56 SLC(10X56 FL as well)and it's going to be hard to beat....

I've ALWAYS been weak! LOL! I'm pretty sure it won't compare favorably to the HD+ in any way optically, especially since the FOV has been set straight. But absolute optical quality isn't...

My first choice for ANYONE to try would be the SV 8X32. I think it's cream of the crop. Most folks have no issue with it whatsoever. Go to any birding event where folks go...

I agree Andy. I'm probably going to just look the other way where Retrovid purchase is concerned. As far as 7X is concerned, I'm covered.
