    New EL Range

    Dear Jabali, in my personal opinion points: b and c are correct. I do not espect them to make HD-version later. Simply the present one would be within the range of many customers, the target is known as good (no asking) payers. Anyway, good move from Swarovski again. MFilipek

    Digiscoping New Camera Samsung NX 100

    Samsung lens 30mm/F2 I think the problem is very simple. The 30mm lens is very good and able to obtain very sharp images but I think the aperture should be 2.8 at least. F2.0 as we see on the pictures is quite mild and can not be really usefull, except for centre area. regards, Marcin Filipek

    Zeiss Conquest's vs. Nikon HG

    Hi, can anyone using both of those brands compare them? Is Nikon HG virtually better class than Conquest? In terms of build quality I am pretty sure Nikon does, but what about optical performance. Is is equal? I am thinking about 10x30(Zeiss) vs. 10x32 (Nikon) all the best, Marcin Filipek
