It is strange to me that the Noctivid has issues with CA. You would think on a $3000 binocular Leica would have used some of the best glass available to control it.

The top alpha's like the SV, SF, EDG and Noctivid are all great binoculars but they all have their plus and minuses. Everybody is different so try them all and see which one YOU like the best.

Newer model Swarovisions have NO Absam Ring!

I recently looked through a new Swarovision 8.5x42 EL and I noticed the "Absam Ring" is gone! Swarovski must have improved the Swarovisions along the way. The "Absam Ring" is that small ring that is...

One thing you should think about is the EDG is discontinued. Nikon already won't fix the SE's that have been discontinued. What is going to happen if you need service on your EDG's in a year?...

What I meant by that is not really the overall length but the diameter of the tubes. The tubes on the SV were slimmer in diameter so I could wrap my fingers around them easier. I found the EDG and FL...

Try Sport Optics. Ask them to check the focuser on the SV 8x32 for you before they ship and make sure it is smooth with no stiction. I don't know if the Leica Ultravid 10x32 is going to sway you over...

That was the old 8x32 EL before the Swarovision. Swarovski totally redesigned them with field flatteners. Read the test on the Swarovision 8.5x42 SV. Allbino's has never retested the new 8x32...

I have two things against EDG's. They are bigger than other comparable alpha's and their resale is lousy. Most people don't understand paying $2K for a NIKON. They are thinking M7's for $500. I had...
