It seems some compact are particularly prone to the hinges working loose. When the Swarovski CL pocket was launched in the UK, by mid morning the hinge on every single one had worked so loose they...

Ravis,

I think the Vanguard EDIV had another update this summer and I haven't seen the latest version. There is still no indication that they've changed the prism coating so 92% transmission would...

I think most of us were a little surprised when Vanguard chose not to build on the success of the EDII but to go to an other designer and revert to a curved view design, reminiscent of the much...

I'm told Vanguard have been listening and we should look out for something in June. No further detail I'm afraid.

I think it's pretty clear that Vanguard managed to get themselves in a bit of a muddle with the EDIV. Perhaps there is a EDV, (or is that an ED III?) on the way? Anyone heard?

Several places in the UK have the ED IV at 399/470 and I have seen it for less.

It no longer seems available on their UK site either, though some stores still have stock.

I don't know what's going on.

To my embarasment, I realise I've never asked Meopta what prism coatings are used on the Meostar and Meopro. The product manager has told me at some length about how many coating machines they have...

Bob,

I've only managed to try the HGL a couple of times but I found it a very likable binocular. I try not to comment on brightness perception as it doesn't seem to have much to do with peak...

Calvin,

I knew you were on the original reviewer list and wondered if Vanguard had changed their mind. Just me then ;)

When they first shipped and were recalled around March Ian told me the ED IV...

At the end of September I was told a review sample was about to be shipped to me, but it never arrived and I wasn't given a reason. I don't know if it was the same for the others on their list?...

Thank you for the additional comments. 1.5 turns may not be your preference, but it shouldn't be the cause of the focussing difficulty you describe. Was there some free play, a dead spot where you...

DutchSparrow,

Thanks for the comments so far. I'd be interested in what you make of it in further comparisons.

I rather like the fast focus of the EDII as well, but I understand it isn't to...

Thanks for the update. It's a couple of months since I spoke to the UK guys and they had no idea when it might be ready. I thought the UK BirdFair in August might be a target date, but perhaps that...

Not a lot to report at present I'm afraid. I did hear the EDIV does not have dielectric prism coatings, but that in itself leads to more questions. They have been passed on to the technical guys, but...

I got an answer back from Vanguard saying they haven't started full production yet, so arrival in stores isn't imminent. No date given. No info on the technical side as yet either, but I've...

Welcome to the forum Sam.

I spoke to the Vanguard team back in the summer and I know they had a higher transmission model in the pipeline, but in my opinion, the prototype I saw needed a lot more...
