GREAT choice! I have the 8X42 of the Endeavor ED II and for the money, I don't think you can beat it right now. I have a feeling you are going to LOVE that binocular!

HD vs. HD+ is approx 2% more light transmission for the HD+ across the measured spectrum which are almost identical. Doubtful you'd ever notice it. The Noctivid adds about another 2% to that PLUS...

Sure! Give it a try! Both the SLC 8X42 and the SV 8.5X42 are viable options. I'd sure give the SLC a shot. It's a little larger and a little heavier than the SV 8X32 but not as large/heavy as the...

As good as the Noctivid is...I'm not gonna give up the UVHD+ 7X72. You stated the reason! 7X depth of field is really nice. 7X42 are user-friendly by nature! I honestly don't use the Noctivids...

HI,

The UVHD 10X42 is a nice binocular. IMO you'll have to really step it up to get an appreciable difference in viewing time and quality at dusk. Personally, I'd stick with the 10X magnification....
