GG,
My feeling too - I like them all; it's nice to have a change sometimes. Your point about fast focus is definitely true but I think it's finally broken me in now! No more struggle; I've learnt to...

Seconded; my Dialyt BGATP was my first serious binocular (i.e. bigger than 8x20 pockets) and nothing in the short time since has had so good and self-placing a rainguard as that flat plate.

Thanks for looking up the transmission data for the 50 vs. the 42, Chosun.

Nikonos-V on my desk as I type with the 35/2.5 lens. (Sounds like I'm typing with the lens - ha ha.)
