No offence directed towards Tobias whatsoever. He gave two possible reasons and I'm leaning towards the "rewired" thing in his own words.
On that note, I hope Tobias thoroughly enjoys his new EDG and...

I'm with Chuck regarding the EDG, an excellent pair of binoculars.
There's often talk of them appearing dim by comparison but I don't think so. They have excellent colour and contrast perhaps it's...

I go between 8x25, 8x32, 7x42 and 8x42 (I'll add to that my massive Fujinon 7x50 IF from time to time on certain occasions but these really aren't typical birding binoculars) for me the 8x32...

Like many I use a bit of a variety but if I had to pin down one particular format which I could use happily across the board and tbere could only be one choice it would be an 8x32.

Non spectacles wearer here and love the Victory 8x25. It's the compact that I'd have at the top of the list not crossed off.
Good to have choices.

Hi Pete,

Sounds like you've done well.
32's (33 in your case) are a great compromise and the Genesis by all reports are a top notch choice, enjoy.

Just now a frolicking pair of White-bellied Sea Eagles through my 8x32's. What a treat.
Using the EDG 8x32 is like coming home, haven't used them much recently but I'm always impressed when I do.
