I don't consider any of the many 8x32s I have tried or owned to qualify as a relaxed view.
The Nikon SE and Swaro SV are most comfortable for me, but as a lover of 7x42s, no 8x32 is going to compare...

I used to own the Action EX 7x35 and I agree that they are nice bins. But I no longer own them because the very fuzzy edges were distracting

This one has caught my attention a few times while ‘net browsing. Just haven’t brought myself to buy it because I sure it won’t compete with my SE 8x32.
I do like the idea of a 7x32 porro though.

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...

Cornwall in May

Hi folks,

I am spending a week in May in Cornwall and am wondering what the birding highlights might be then.
Iíll be staying near Tintagel.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks

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.

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.
