I am a newbie on this forum and trying to find my way to buy a good pair of all round binos that will last my lifetime. (42 now, so another 40 years if lucky)
I have the opportunity to buy a set of EL 8.5x42 Mk 1 (2002) for £675.
Optically they are perfect condition, but the outer cover...
i have ordered a set of these on Amazon
Eyeskey Diamond ED
They look good on paper at least, especially the FoV.
Has anyone else tried them?

High performance - ED glass for superior color reproduction, superior quality Phase Corrected BaK4 prisms with Dielectric Coating...
I have the option to buy a set of 8x42 in the region of £300-£350
The 2 models that I am focusing in on are the Viking ED Pro and the Hawke Frontier ED-X.
On paper they look similar in specs and cost.
Does anyone have any experience with them? Or even a better alternative.
