In your opinion what is the best 10x42 for $500?
Here are my wants.
No aspherical or field flattening lenses, I do not like the globe effect.
FOV-normal or wide angle, nothing less than 315 feet @1000 yds.
I am not too particular whether it is a single hinge or open bridge design.
Do not get...
I just received a new binocular the other day so I set off to do some comparisons to my other binoculars.
I spent about 2 hours in the backyard last evening and compared three binoculars against each other for brightness and clarity until it was dark.
My new binocular received is a Steiner...
Just a heads up.
The most new Cabela's shooting catalog I just received is listing the new Meopta (cabelas version) meostar HD in a new 12x50 and 15x56. Should be some serious competition to the new Zeiss Conquest HD 15x56 and New Swarovski SLC HD 15x56 .
These look interesting as they weigh...
I am considering buying a new 10x40 Habicht to use as my primary 10x but do not have one locally to look through.
I know the brightness will be great and the FOV is good enough and I actually like the weight of the rubber armored version for a 10x glass.
I am wondering how the glass handles...
Picked up a prime 10x yesterday and thought I would post my findings.
I was able to compare it to my Zeiss 10x42 Victory FL, 8.5x42 Swarovision and what has become my gold standard to compare mid price optics to-my Leupold cascade series 8x42 porro.
Eye cups-I have no problem with the size...
