Regarding the Wray, etc: fascinating and a good part of the excitement is the travel when you have hunted these rarities down. Don't think I've yet been exposed to the presence of Thorium-glass in my...

You must have a bad sample of focuser on our FL as FL focusers on the 32 and also others are exceptionally good on the ones I have used (8x32, 7x42, 8x56). I would say it's possible -...

John, you didn't find the EL a bit cooler in colour than the SLC neu? Otherwise my findings are the same as yours.

I have in the last months got hold of a late, pristine condition 7x42 SLC neu and agree with Hinmark - almost entirely. For me the ergonomics are excellent. Personal choice will always be different...
