Exactly what I was going to say.

At what point does CA that I don't see in Noctivids that I own impede or hamper my ability to enjoy this binocular while birding?

Glad you got the Meopta 7X42s! You have two really nice ones now. The B.1 IS kinda heavy but with a decent harness, not too bad.

I agree. 10 feet is plenty for me. ALL 42mm Leica UVHD+ have CF of about 10ft. SLCs are the same. I've never had a problem birding with any of them.
