The main reason that you wouldn't want an orange or red binocular for birding is birds can see in color as we do and probably better.
I hunt wild turkey and they can see colors at incredible distances.
I would not mind an orange binocular for hunting but wouldn't have much success with it...
I looked at a 10x42 NL at Cabelas and thought they were fantastic.
I noticed the huge FOV and clarity right away.
I will probably get the 12x42 NL since I have the 10x42 HT.
Don't really need the NL since my HTs are just fine but can't stand not owning the latest and greatest.
I never once...
I have a pair of the Swarovski SL seen in post #3.
I bought them in 1989 and loved them despite their heavyweight construction and terrible focus wheel.
To me, they're by far the best-looking and rugged porros ever made.
I gave them to my cousin several years ago but he despised their weight...
According to everything I've read and heard over the years, the Fluorite lens Kowa produces is superior to any ED Fluoride glass used by the Big 3.
In most reviews, the Big Kowa 88mm Fluorite lens almost always beats the others when compared with them.
That is the main reason I would want a...

Would love to own both but wish Kowa would bring out their own 115mm or larger spotting scope with Fluorite lens. :t:
I always thought Leica made the best looking binoculars and can't believe I've never owned a pair.
I thought the Swarovski SL was the best looking porros ever made and have an old pair I leave in my trunk for trips to the gun range.
But roof prism look much better than porros to me.
I like the...
All I knew at the time is what I read on some of the forums and saw on YouTube videos stating Zeiss owned and controlled Schott glass.
I assumed they were right but I know, "never assume anything"!
As you probably know, Zeiss owns Schott so they get to use any new style glass Schott brings out first.
They did exactly that with the HT glass back in 2013 and kept it for themselves at first.
There were a number of sources on the net and videos on YouTube stating that fact.
Around 2 to 3 years...
I was seriously thinking about getting an NL Pure but I'm leaning toward a response from Zeiss.
Besides, Zeiss does have priority on Schott glass vs everyone else so waiting to see what Zeiss brings out might be the best way to go. :t:
