    Nikon MHG 8x30 vs Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32

    Yes correct...I must admit that the CL feels really well in my hands too....I just had other issues but the 'fit' is perfect. To each their own ...I know I had both the CL and the MHG side by side ....in the field for awhile. I cannot speak more highly of the process of selecting a binocular...

    Nikon MHG 8x30 vs Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32

    This has been something I have been stating about the CL for a long time...it is SLOW to focus in on an object. The HG beats the CL hands down in many areas and is by far the better bin. And that is not to mention the price.... the CL is US 1200 vs the MHG for roughly $900... clearly a better bin

    Nikon MHG 8x30 vs Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32

    Good information Eltan.....nice to know. Gilmore Girl.... I agree on the size and weight of the Trinovid... after looking at the MHG or other 30-32's...I was a bit taken back by the weight etc compared to size of others.

    Nikon MHG 8x30 vs Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32

    For some reason the Trinovid's are made differently and have an excellent focus wheel...something all Leica's should have. Of course I have only seen the 8x32 models and can't respond to any those you mention. But why did and does Leica still put up with that focus wheel is beyond me. The...

    Nikon MHG 8x30 vs Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32

    I had the PLUS Ultravid and no, it really was not updated. I had a retailer in UK look at all 5 of the Ultravids they had in stock and one here in the states looked at 4. So out of 9, plus the one I had....all were the PLUS and all had issues with the focus wheel. Leica has a problem that...

    Nikon MHG 8x30 vs Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32

    Nice posting.....I came to much the same conclusion as you a few months ago. I in fact decided on getting a used Ultravid at first over the MHG and then returning it. (Used Ultravid was $1500 US while the Nikon was new for $806). I loved the contrast, the color....the quality etc of the...
