    Found 7x30 Habicht

    I'm just trying to decide if it's worth spending the $500 and shipping right now...thanks for all the feedback. Please keep the thoughts coming!

    Correct, they said these are Mark I.

    Found 7x30 Habicht

    Filthy and the strap brackets are broken off. Hard telling what these have been through.

    Found 7x30 Habicht

    I will get a few pics posted in a bit, but from further info via email, I send these back and they build an updated version, it seems. Here's an excerpt of an email from Swarovski: At a cost of $500, one of our Austrian trained technicians will build you a new pair of SLC Mark IV’s. It is...

    Found 7x30 Habicht

    I will probably just take the loss on these. I do wear glasses so they are mostly unusable for me and it seems they cannot be repaired. Here is the latest from customer service: "Thank you for providing the photo. It has determined that we are unable to repair this product. Unfortunately Austria...

    Yes, it is the SLC, thanks. Not sure why that was omitted from my original post.

    Found 7x30 Habicht

    ...at a thrift store in a bag with a pair of toy bins for $6.99. They are in ROUGH shape. I wonder if they are worth repair?

    Binocular bargains

    Thanks! Looks like a better deal to just stick with the 8x42 for just over $100.

    Binocular bargains

    I would love to know where to find the 8.5x45. Can't locate them for some reason. (Vanguard says they are no longer made. Boo.)

    Anyone repairing ZR?

    Yes, because as I look at Bushnell I don't see my 8x43 size preference. Thanks! ;)

    Anyone repairing ZR?

    Thanks, everyone. I'll just use mine until I find something I love. I appreciate your replies and thoughts. I'll keep you posted.

    Anyone repairing ZR?

    No, nothing.

    Anyone repairing ZR?

    I am so annoyed with this whole thing. I bought three bins and a scope from Charles over the years. I feel totally ripped off. Especially since I have bins that have a broken objective lens from hitting the cement. He could've at least said "use XXXX company for repairs but be ready to pay".

    Why isn't Zen Ray fixing customer service?

    The good news, I guess, is you can't buy them anymore since they are closed. The bad news is, I'm learning, that my ZRs in need of repair are probably forever dead.

    Why isn't Zen Ray fixing customer service?

    Guess I'll hold off until April to see if they return like the website says they will. My bins still work just fine, but the objective lenses are both cracked from a flat fall on to concrete. :(

    Why isn't Zen Ray fixing customer service?

    The ZR facebook page appears to have been removed and there's a note on their website about revamping the site and it should return in 2018. I need warranty work and can't get in touch with Charles. I've emailed and called a number listed on the net, but it goes to a personal voicemail that...

    Charles?

    Thanks, Steve. He finally got back with me this afternoon.
  18. MichelleOhio

    Charles?

    Looking for Charles again….he's been great for the most part, but why doesn't he check emails/facebook regularly?? Hoping he's okay, but assume he is since this seems to be a recurring issue. :(

    Phone Skope adapter

    Has anyone tried these yet? I'm trying to find the length and diameter of the ZR Prime ED2 20-60mm EP. Going to give it a shot.

    Canon SX50 spot metering

    Probably a dumb question, but did you try to "save" the setting?

    ZR never seems to win...

    I just don't think it's possible to do a real taste test for Pepsi vs Coke if you can see what you're drinking. ;) Tape them, paint them, no straps…change it all. THEN tell me what you think.

    ZR never seems to win...

    I have owned four pair of ZR bins and have no plans to change that…I'm quite pleased. I just wonder how biased these reviews/reviewers are. Wish they could/would do a blind comparison. Just thought I would throw the question out there, I'm not picking on ZR. Actually, quite the opposite.

    …"Best Binocular" reviews in magazines. Why not? :smoke:

    Charles?

    Thanks, Frank. I heard from him on their fb page and he said he wasn't going to make it. :(

    Charles?

    Thanks! Thought he was coming to Ohio next week, but I can't get a reply and he's not on the vendor list. :(
