I bought Opticron compact binocular rainguard to my Terra 8x25, I'll guess it fits the Victory also.
I don't use any objective cover though.
Look at Amazon or Naturbokhandeln.se

Yes, and they do have long legs and big, heavy body.
Quite dangerous if you hit one with your car because you drive in under it and get the body right on the windshield.

Gijs,
you are spot on with the heavy turning resistans, that was the problem.
You are probably also right about the hunters, I think a hunter would have thought that it was just fine as it was.

Saw the Victory 8x25 a few days ago.

It was nice and compared to my Terra I noticed a larger FOV but otherwise no big difference.
Maybe the Victory is brighter and sharper but nothing I noticed...

Thanks for the warm welcome.
I enjoy observing birds and animals/nature in general but don't have any deeper knowing in birding.
Hope to expand that now.
