Those look nice and I think an IS compact makes a lot of sense because even with the smaller exit pupil they are not as difficult for eye placement as a regular compact or as finicky. Now you have...

I feel the SV is better for me because I like the flat field and edge sharpness more than the SLC. The SV is Swarovski's best binocular. I have had quite a few SLC's and SV's and one thing I have...

Andy. You are correct the Zeiss SF glare problem sounds like it is caused by insufficient baffling. According to Allbinos "If not for that strange slip-up with reflections beyond the eyepiece's...

I had them both and I would compare them often and I don't wear glasses. IMO with the smaller exit pupils they are both about equally finicky with eye placement. The Nikon HG 8x30's have bigger eye...

I think the softer image could be the higher 12x magnification versus lower magnification. I have always noticed 12x seems softer than 8x.

The difference between the 12x28 and the 16x28 is the 16x with it's smaller 1.8mm exit pupil is little more finicky with eye placement than the 2.5mm exit pupil of the 12x28. But the 16x28 has a...

I don't think it is mediocre for it's size but keep in mind it is a 16x28 not a 12x50. That is only a 1.8mm exit pupil.

I don't think so. I really don't see why you want a 10x with IS. The big advantage to these is having high magnification with a steady tripod view that you can carry in your coat pocket or easily...
