I believe they will capture some market share, especially with their aggressive pricing strategy this year. Their products were already world class.

Agree with you on Swaro's outstanding warranty and customer service. After all, they modeled it after Leupold, who set the standard by which all others are judged to this day.

I agree. Most any $500 glass nowadays has better optics than anything made 20+years ago.

Winged eyecups will greatly help with the halo ring effect, IMO. A lot of that glare is coming in from the side, etc.

The best is whatever he owns at that particular moment.

I'm not very sad when I am forced to use my Toric's though. They still punch waaaay above their pay grade.
