if you are looking for detail at twilight you will see more with the 18x56 than the 15x56. I have personally observed it myself many times with binoculars of various formats. The 15x56 will appear...

Dave. It is just the new Canon's I had issues with the eye cups. All the other Canon's I have never had a problem with them. They usually worked well.

I tried the New Canon 12x32 and 14x32 IS and I absolutely hated them. The eye relief was way too long for the eye cups for me. I kind of feel that is why they cut the price by 1/2. Just saying.

I compared the Zeiss 8x42 SF and HT and I preferred the SF because of it's slightly bigger FOV and balance but the HT is very nice and I you will really appreciate the 94% transmission in twilight....
