You did a great job, well done. Thanks for posting.

A mount like yours is very stable, and they really do add to viewing.

Tom:

You should look back on the Zeiss subforum, and find where Henry Link posted about his review of the 8x54 HT.

He found it behind in optics compared to the FL. Much less resolution and more. ...

Roy:

I think the 8x32 EL is the most ergonomically great binocular that I have found.
It just fits perfectly, I have the earlier SV model.
It does everything right with the wide 8* field of view,...

I think that is simply a stop marked in red. I see 2 pin holes that are there, and that means
a pin wrench can tighten the hinge. There is usually a small set screw in a hole to loosen, then do...

Tell us, are you wearing your glasses when viewing ? I did not see that above. So if so, your
correction should help equalize the diopter, but when viewing without glasses you will have to...

Robert:

I agree with all of the above. I have a similar gray Victory 10x42 SF, I have also found Zeiss made
a better binocular than the Swarovision, I own both.

Congratulations.

Binoculars cannot be pressurized, some roof types are simply purged with a gas like N to remove normal air.

I think the Zeiss Conquest HD would be a great choice, also in the midrange the Nikon Monarch HG.

You did not try the right Meopta, that would be the Meostar, also one of the best in this range.

I have experience with these models. The PS7 10x42 is a very capable binocular and is a good

Your point is good, but the Docter mentioned is an older military binocular, fully armored and not anything

I agree with you, the proclamation of error-nald of a new 7x Leica is suspect.

But he was right, these are just binoculars, and not important in the end.;)

Review - Zeiss Terra 8x42

I found a recent review from Binomania, on the newly restyled Terra
binoculars. There are a few changes, including color options, a furnished
case and observed changes to the optics.

Well, I stand by my comment, you put a big jab on Leica, that was not called for.

So, I called you out on that. That is what it was all about, I felt it was unfair to the company.
