    ZEISS 15x 60 B/GA Binoculars?

    I'm not sure. Never saw a 21th century produced one with 6-digit.

    ZEISS 15x 60 B/GA Binoculars?

    I believe the B stands for eyeglasses in German. The rubber eyecups can be folded down or completely removed for eyeglass users. There are earlier models which have been marked T, but optically they are not the same.

    ZEISS 15x 60 B/GA Binoculars?

    If you really want one, buy the latest 2002~2003 model with a 7-digit serial number. Or at least buy a BGAT "Made in Germany" version , the optics are clearly superior than the earlier models. I recently sold my 1560BGAT serial number 64xxxx for $1500.

    Nikon WX anyone?

    You'd better not. It's an ordeal to the neck. Best solution is put them into a bag/sack, I suggest Billingham or Nikon 100th anniversary bag.

    Interview with Zeiss Senior Optical Scientist

    I think I should put a data warning on pages I referenced. We usually don't have this limit here, i.e. my monthly package is 100GB which I never used over halfway. The "seagull" hold is typical here, maybe we should try another hold.

    zeiss 15x60 vs. swarovski 15x56

    The info is not precise. In 1998 Zeiss did stop the 1560 production. But in 2002, Zeiss again briefly start a one-off new run, but soon stopped again. The serial number is 7-digit instead of 6 of the 1998 version.

    Interview with Zeiss Senior Optical Scientist

    Actually after several days use of the SF 1032, I'm already bored. I have lowered my expectation much after I took part in its premier in early September (http://www.bggd.com/bbs/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=451102) in case you are interested. But I have to admit the increased afov does not make...

    Interview with Zeiss Senior Optical Scientist

    I noticed the prism cage question was not answered. That was the one I'm most interested in.

    zeiss 15x60 vs. swarovski 15x56

    The latest Zeiss 15x60 BGA/T is better than the old Swaroski SLC 15X56, but not the current SLC model.

    Want the best 3D effect- 8x56 vs 10x56 slc

    If you want best 3d effect, go for a Mark 43. That's a different class, making all the porro's view like a flat paper.
