Jerry,

I remember one of your posts of about 1 year ago in which you said: "according to Zeiss only 2-5% of the population will even be affected", so we are not too far apart. Holger, who has...

Andy,

Compared to the FL 10x42 the Forge 10x42 seems to be significantly heavier, by about 3.5oz. Interestingly, the Forge line also includes a 15x56 with AK prisms.

Jerry,

Note that there is a big difference between seeing the RB effect and being affected/bothered by it. The percentage of people bothered by RB is of course much smaller, but I have no idea where...

Adhoc,

It's brain adaption: I know several users of Swaros who first were affected by RB but after a while (usually a few days) have become completely insensitive to it. But it can also go the other...

Andreas,

Most of what you say is correct. In particular only about 5-10% of all people are affected by RB (rolling ball), I believe people who suffer from motion sickness are in this category. Most...

Lee,

An old film had 36 pics, why take only one shot? Maybe the photographer took several but the one shown was the best, which would confirm your theory.

Another possibility is that the actor...

Wow that was a quick decision! From what Lee said about the HD 8x32 I am sure that you could not find a better bino for your application. Enjoy your new binos!

I don't think that was the reason. My best guess is that Zeiss wanted to stress that the bino had a humongous ER and can be used by people using spectacles with very thick glasses, or by users w/...

Zeiss Victory FL 8x32 has a close focus of slightly less than
1.5m, at least for me, and they are much smaller and lighter than your 8.5x42. (interestingly, B&H lists the close focus of the FL 8x32...

Adhoc:

I think it depends quite a bit on the landscape. For instance if you pan with an SV 8.5x42 over the trunks of the trees in a grove, with out-of-focus undergrowth between you and the grove,...

Steve,

What you describe is exactly the idea behind the simple/approximate definition of the AFOV, which is:
AFOV=magnification x FOV.
The current definition of the AFOV, which is used by most...

Andreas,

I don't pretend I have the right solution for you, but if I were you I would consider selling your 8.5x (instead of your Ferrari...) and replacing it with the SV 10x50. The 10x is not much...

Hi Andreas,

Like John and Chuck I also own both the SV 10x50 and 12x50. Both are outstanding binos, but if I had to choose one then it would be the 12x50. The 12x feels very well balanced in the...

Good question in the last para of your post above. The binos have a given ER. You can say that, given your facial features or your use of the binos w/ glasses, the ER is too much or too little,...

Occasionally we see such comments on the BF that require a small correction: the ER of the binos is a fixed parameter that does not vary with the length of the eyecups.

I am sure you know those are conflicting requirements. Perhaps the Swaro Habicht 8x30 would be a good compromise---bright and not too heavy, and well within your budget. If brightness is more...
