I f I was about to buy my first premium binocular then an NL would be at the top of my list.

For me, the reduced contrast and slightly less vibrant image displayed in the photo`s from the SF is what makes it work so well. The first time I looked through one in a very high contrast situation...

Its been a long time since I handled a 32mm UV, I`d forgotten how much smaller they are.

I do love the size and action of the metal focus wheel on the Genesis.

Same here, the more I use the Genesis 33 the more my admiration for it grows, I find I can easily live with the distortion Eitan speaks of which lets me enjoy a near perfect "fit" from it.

Hi pm, sounds like you`re where I was, I have a 42mm SF and agree its "better" optically, but a 7x42 especially the UVHD+ is worth keeping and I wish I`d kept mine.

I deeply regret selling my 7x42UVHD+, I got seduced by my 8.5x42SVFP and did`nt use my UV for several months so sold it, big mistake, a truly special and now unique Alpha.

Hi Paddy, both of my Nikon 8x32 SE`s, I still don`t know what I was thinking, I may have "better" but they still remain my all time favourite.

Hi Amy, six weeks of use is worth a good deal, it means you`v had the time to form a reasoned view of them.

Good to read your thoughts.

Thanks Piergiovanni for posting this. To me the NL image is the cleanest marginally, but how well the 32SF stacks up to the 42`s is amazing.

Yes, twice the price 32mm Alpha`s, not the latest five years in development 42mm offering.

The Kowa is an old design but its never going to compare directly to any 42mm Alpha.

I don`t think its fair to compare the Genesis 8x33 to an NL8x42 even just trying to make a point, its 1/3rd of the price.

Its the demand for and discussion of superb optics on forums like this that push manufacturers to produce binoculars like the NL, Henry`s reviews are well respected on these pages.

The difference is the Human looking through them, pass one binocular around 10 forum members on here and some will see too much glare, some too much CA and some a colour cast.

It will be a while until there is a general consensus about the NL, I enjoy reading users impressions they have value, lets not put those lucky owners off sharing their thoughts with needless sniping.
