The Nikon would have a little bigger FOV @ 362 feet versus the 345 feet of the Zeiss and be about 4 oz. lighter than the Zeiss with the Nikon weighing 24 oz. and the Zeiss weighing 28 oz. I never...

Kidney Beaning is caused by the eye relief of the binocular not matching your eyes. A lot of binocular's eye cups don't screw out far enough to match the eye relief and many are so small(like...

I think you would like the Nikon Monarch HG 10x42 based on you requirements. I use 10x all the time and I don't have a problem holding it steady and it shows a lot more detail. It has a big FOV, it...

I agree with what you say about the subjective part of Allbinos reviews or any reviews but the objective part is pretty cut and dried. In my experience an 82.5% transmission is pretty low and when...

A lot of people would buy an 8x30 over an 8x32 if it offers 95% of the performance of the 8x32 at 1/2 the cost, especially with the smaller size and weight of an 8x30. A lot of people are just casual...

The edges are too soft and the light transmission is really poor @ 82.5% according to Allbino's. I would avoid them.

Why, Swarovski did it with the 8x25 CL-P to the 8x30 CL B? I think there is a market for an 8x25, 8x30 and an 8x32. There is enough difference between the three in weight, size, performance and price.

Exactly. That thought crossed my mind too. Would they want to handicap themselves with a 2mm smaller aperture compared to their competition the SV 8x32? But maybe Zeiss could build an 8x30 SF that...

You know I just realized Nikon's new smaller less than 32mm binoculars are all 8x30's and no 8x32's. The MHG and the M7 are both 8x30's. Maybe the trend is down to 8x30's. I wouldn't mind it. 8x30 is...

Yes, that would be nice if Zeiss would make an 8x30. I really think 8x30's and 8x32's are the ideal birding size and with the increasing performance of small binoculars like the 8x30 combined with...

After just purchasing a Swarovski Habicht 7x42 I confer on the high light transmission. It is a very bright binocular and performs very well under low light. Also, it is very light for a 42mm.
