Yes Matt, the ultimate test is the field test. 200 lifers with my Monarchs. I would buy them again if that is all they sold for under 400.

Comparing similar ED bins and Legend.

Err...tough. Maybe. I sort of enjoy the look and the feel in use of roofs over porros. So if they were actually equivalent, it might be hard to be objective...

We are just talking perceived dof here, not real. We add poor optical qualities easily to the feeling of poor dof. Porros and roofs work the same way, I was able to convince myself, with dof. Power...

Frank, we can't use that term anymore, because of the theorists. We have to say perceived, or apparent, so perceived depth of field.

Yes, I was wondering where all this stray light was coming from. Not here either. ;)

Many of those European and Japanese made models are made of parts made in China. ;) So are Leupolds.

Sancho, you got one? To join the others on the shelf? I thought you were a faithful one binocular man. Plus image stabilized toys. ;)

Yes, there was some, but because of the open eye cups, I think part of the experience was from light at that end, not from the objective. Hard to remember.

I figured it would come around to that, somehow. I have never been bothered by it in 10x roofs with about 315ft fov.

But it may be seen in porros too, I should think.

That is how it goes. Binoculars are kind of like the dress that is too short. If you pull it down, it reveals too much on top. We just juggle our specs and requirements around, but we can't have it...

The reason that 9x would not sell is that many people cannot tell the difference between similar 8x and 9x. But with 10x you can impress a lot of people, especially the nonbirding kind. "Wow, these...

Well, we can approach the subject with which one has the strap out of its plastic bag. I think neither at this point. Oh, I do see the Hawke strap, not attached though.
