Fixed eps are so much better than zooms. I’ve yet to find a zoom I can use all through its range with my glasses on.

Swar 30x, Nikon DS 30x are lovely. My favourites are Nikon EDG fixed eps. I have...

If a Binuxit was like a Nikon SE but with an extra degree gov with enough e/r for my glasses then it sounds great to me.

I would be interested in a 7x35 Porto if it matched the Nikon SE in quality.
I don't know whether that matches any Leica models of yesteryear.

I agree. Great scope, great e/p. You may be able to pick up a 20x fixed later or or perhaps gt anastro adapter to use 1.25Ē eps.

Kidding aside, very nice review. Thank you.
I am increasingly interested in the 7x35

Is that the older model Razor with the grey and green body? If so, the ep is a clone of the Swaro zoom. It's a good EP but the usable eye relief seemed less than the Swaro zoom to me.

Wow 6m close focus is very unusual these days. For birding binoculars anyway. I think 3m is considered long in a modern birding binocular. My favourite bins are 3m. I've yet to have a bird too close...

As a birder I’ve never worried about close focus. I’ve had bins that focus between 3’ and 10’ and never noticed the difference in real use. Close focus is more important to insect watchers.
