Interesting thought Jerry. I'm trying to think what would impress me enough to purchase a new Swarovski. Quite honestly it would have to be a new model. Maybe a 7X32/35. EL or SLC, it probably...

For that kind of money....I'd probably look at a few others. There are a LOT of binoculars at this price that are proven entities. I'd look at those.

I agree with Canip above...great explanation.

I'm not sure there is a better binocular that does more things right than the EDG. Field is among the flattest. EXCELLENT ergonomics. Nice...

Exactly correct! B.1 8X42 OR a B.2 9X45. I agree 100% about the Maven vs. Toric. I've been there, done that. Better optics and better made. Cost more of course.

My vote is for a Meopta Meopro HD 8X42. I've had one two months....I REALLY like it for a binocular in the $400 range. I have had zero issues with it. Should be readily available close to you.
