Robert,

I'm not denying pupil dilation decreases with age. I've read well over a dozen reports on the subject, but it is something that is wildly exaggerated by some on the forum. That particular...

Chuck,

A 10x50 has a 42% larger exit pupil area than a 10x42, if you can use it, so it will take more than AK prisms to swing that difference. I don't like carrying more weight than necessary...

Robert,

I'm not sure how relevant that paper to this discussion due to the short adaption time and angular diameter of the target, but I think you will find that the 9cd/m2 fitted line shows the...

Apart from the possibility that a 4.2mm EP could be limiting, I'd probably go with the Swaro anyway. I'm not keen on the colour balance of the Zeiss under those conditions, but I'm sure others will...

WF,

Just as a blindsider. For the same money as the T4, Opticron have the Adventurer T WP 6.5x32 porro. It won't tuck into your shirt pocket, but has a very wide field of view, works well with my...

Wilberfloss,

Welcome to the forum.

I'm slightly surprised no owners have come forward to comment. The T4 may not be everyone's first choice binocular but I'm sure many have one in the glove box of...

Back in 2013 I was told the probable launch date for the B1 repacement was spring 2015. I've not been told the specific reason for the delay, but suspect the contractual arrangements with Cabela's...

In the early stages of the development process I begged the product manager to at least retain the shape of the 8x32. I don't hold out much hope. ;)

Rob,

Thanks for the heads-up. I wondered if something might be announced at the SHOT show, but perhaps UK Birdfair in August? Not sure what to expect. ED/HD across the range, lower weight and maybe...

Many here often comment on perceived brightness, but Leinhos and Khler (Zeiss) actually studied apparent acuity which gave rise to the Twilight factor. While they didn't didn't have eithr a 8x42 or...

Lee/Dennis,

Don't forget this data simply tells you about the normalised signal distribution between the 3 colour channels of a Canon D400 camera. It tells us absolutely nothing about the peak or...

They will be different. The HRWP appeared to have very good resolution to me, but the field curvature and narrow field of view makes the sweet spot seem rather small. It has the slightly warm colour...

Hr,

The Sapphire ED 8x43 was mostly a coatings upgrade of the Frontier ED. The Top Hinge 8x42 is a bit shorter and lighter. It did have slightly more field curvature than the other two, but worked...

Personally, I'd take the Sapphire ED top hinge 8x42 from your list.

I'm not really persuaded that FoV is the most important parameter, but the the 161m/1000m, 483ft/100yds of the 75 Opticron...
