    Focuser smoothness on NL Pure?

    I had to return my first pair of 10x42 NL Pure as a bit of swarf appeared in one lens barrel . I had noticed the focus wheel wasn't as buttery smooth as my brother in law's Zeiss Victory but not bad enough to return. It was worse if I applied forward pressure to the wheel while turning .

    Short review of the Swarovski 10x42 NL Pure

    First non technical impressions having come from the 10x42 SV to the 10x42 NL . Whoa, what is going on here ? as you first take in the enlarged field of view . I hadn't thought it would be such a big deal as you are focused on the centre but it does help to orientate you and avoids getting lost...
