Yes, if I'd have to choose now between these binoculars, I'd buy HT or Ultravid HD+, instead FL. But for me it isn't an improvement enough to pay off the change.

When a Zeiss SF 8x32?

Zeiss hasn't any 8x32 alpha binocular.
And now they have just upgraded their 8x42 SF with several improvements.
I think now it could be the time to deliver a 8x32 SF black binocular.
