Yes correct...I must admit that the CL feels really well in my hands too....I just had other issues but the 'fit' is perfect. To each their own ...I know I had both the CL and the MHG side by side...

Meostar B1.1 plus

The Meostar has upped the Meostar to a B1.1 Plus.....

I am assuming it is not much different from the B1.1 as the B2 is still 'off', to arrive some day far down the road.

Anyhow see or hold a B1.1...

For some reason the Trinovid's are made differently and have an excellent focus wheel...something all Leica's should have. Of course I have only seen the 8x32 models and can't respond to any those...

First...I have had both of these and can clearly state in my mind that the MHG is much better than the Swaro. The Swarovski is simply overpriced at $1250US.

The close focus on the CL doesn't come...

I found the Maven to have strong strong strong glare.... it really bothered me. For $300 bucks more, get a Meostar on Sale or the MHG 8x30 on sale too.... no glare, better bin.

The Swaro ATS with the 25-50 Eyepiece is remarkable.... If one compares the 20-60 Eyepiece, the Swaro doesn't do as well. Now, if you are digiscoping, you will never go beyond 20-25 anyhow, so don't...
