Hi Frank,

The XP's have a more Leica-like character in the image, yes. Vivid colours. When I said I liked them better than the 7x42 FL's, it's because of this character. The FL's have a very neutral...

I didn't like the animated "Watership Down" film, too shallow IMO regarding characters in the book. (Though they were rabbits, it's more than a bunny book, it's something of a Homerian odyssey.) I...

Hi David,

I would rank my newly acquired Chinese 8x42 Eden Quality XP roofs of 279 2nd tier. Excellent for the price.
