A big enough Gitzo and a Manfrotto 500AH head. Something like the GT3532. The Harpia isn't a light and small scope, so you'll want a substantial tripod.

In that kind of temperatures I'd always go for a roof. Stiff focusers aren't very nice at all.

Check the literature on why AK prism have higher transmission.

In short: NO, it does not have higher transmission.

That's what I thought. Should not be that much of a problem in real life actually. Not suitable for use in the bathtub though ... ;)



Good. I don't like the use of plastics (and glue) at all. I'm...

These look pretty good for high ISO shots! Hm, maybe I should get a Z50 as well as long as the current offer stands.

What I'm curious about is, is if the Z50 offers ANY kind of weather sealing....

Adding RAW seems me to be pretty useful. I wouldn't buy a camera today that doesn't have RAW. And the price will come down in the new few months no doubt ... ;)

Thanks Jan. That's pretty interesting stuff. So these aren't really "real" Trinovids anymore. Thought so after it became clear that they don't use Uppendahl prisms. Also explains why the 8x40 and the...

I had exactly the same impression of the 8x40 when I compared it to the Trinovid HD at the trade fair in early December. In fact, I also preferred the contrast and the colour balance of the Retrovid....

The Turmon works very well with the accessory lenses. There's a fairly comprehensive set, so you get different magnifications. Quite amazing, really.

I personally like the SLC and the Zeiss better than the EL 10x50. Another excellent binocular in that range is the Leica Ultravid 10x50 HD+. That may well be the best of the Ultravid models. Even the...

Same here. I find the 8x32 and the 10x32 of that series a lot better with regard to CA and rolling ball.

BTW, I'm quite sure these binoculars were also made by Nikon, just like the original...

Latest rumour is that the D780 will have the Z6's PDAF sensor, making it suitable for video.

You summed up nicely what makes the 7x35 interesting. Small package and light. And from what I saw at the fair in early December the optics are at least pretty decent. I compared the Retrovid 8x40 to...

It certainly does. I missed that thread somehow. That combination (Kenko 1.4+70-300 DX) doesn't focus on my DSLRs. On the old Nikon 1V1 it does on really bright days. And if that works on the Z50 -...

Actually, these shots don't look bad at all! 32,000 ISO and 51,200 ISO? That's quite amazing. I think these look better than what I get with the D7500. With the D7500 I try to keep the ISO below...
