    Zeiss 10x40 SFL - Roger Vine's Review

    I have a Zeiss Victory 8x25 binoculars made in Japan. I compared it with the Noctivid 8x42 that I have and with the NL 8x42 that I sold. In my opinion, the image provided by Victory is at least equal to that provided by NL and a hair sharper than Noctivid. I have astigmatism and Victory's...

    Zeiss SFL versus Zeiss Victory FL contrast and color reproduction.

    I had a Zeiss SF 10x32 but after 2 weeks I realized that the 10x32 format does not suit me due to the exit pupil of 3.2 mm and in addition quite a lot of parasitic reflections especially with the strong front light. I had to part with it even though I liked the resolution, contrast and colors...

    Zeiss SFL versus Zeiss Victory FL contrast and color reproduction.

    Yes, I think you are very right here because I have noticed that I have this obsession with wanting to see more colorful colors through the binoculars than in reality,:)

    Zeiss SFL versus Zeiss Victory FL contrast and color reproduction.

    I know that when it comes to the appreciation of colors and contrast, people can be extremely subjective because not everyone perceives colors in the same way, but I would like to know if there are such big differences that almost anyone can notice them. I have this curiosity because in many...

    Zeiss SFL versus Zeiss Victory FL contrast and color reproduction.

    I have two 42 mm binoculars: Zeiss Victory FL 7x42 and Leica Noctivid 8x42 and I would like to keep only one but I can't decide because I love both : the over saturated colors of Noctivid and the cleaner colors of Victory. I've read a lot of reviews about the new Zeiss SFL and I think that since...

    Ultravid 10x25 BR. My first alpha class pocketable binocular.

    Unfortunately, microscope rubber eyepiece guards are no longer in stock on Amazon. Maybe it's just your post to blame, everyone rushed to buy. 🤣

    Zeiss SFL 8x30?

    Opportunity knocks at your door at the most inopportune moment, I had just found for sale here in Romania two Zeiss SF 8x32 and 10x32 for 1300 euros each. , and I think I can get them even cheaper because the seller has no documents, box or accessories with them. When I was getting ready to make...

    Zeiss SFL 8x30?

    Does anyone have any idea what size it is and how much it weighs? Compared on the photo next to the 40 mm SFL, using a graduated ruler and a simple arithmetic calculation. it seems to be 114-115 mm long. The weight should be between 420-460 grams.

    New Zeiss binos 8x40 SFL and 10x40 SFL

    On my screen the image from SFL shows the whitest white but the details appear clearer in NL and SF. I also notice small yellow areas in some places in the photo taken by SFL

    New Zeiss binos 8x40 SFL and 10x40 SFL

    A few years ago I had a Swarovski CLPocket 8x25. At one point I bought a Zeiss Victory 8x25 from Ebay for a friend who doesn't have an Ebay account. The binoculars came to my address so I took advantage and made a comparison between the two. I was very disappointed with the image provided by...

    New Zeiss binos 8x40 SFL and 10x40 SFL

    pm42, thank you for sharing your first impressions so quickly. What can you tell us about colors compared to SF and NL? I now have NL PURE 8X42 and I had SF 8x42. I didn't notice in the SF that greenish hue that some people are talking about. Do you have the impression that the new SFL also has...

    Swarovski Habicht 10x40W (Newest Version) vs Zeiss Dialyt 10x40 Newest Version

    I had Zeiss Dialyt 10x40 BGA TP and I had Swarovski Habicht 10x40 made in 1996. Unfortunately I did not own these binoculars at the same time so I could not compare them. I remember from memory that the Dialyt I had first was very impressive. I did not expect such an image quality. But a year or...

    Impressed by my new Nikon Monarch HG 8X30

    Today was a sunny day, I went to the bank of the river that passes through the city, it is a large colony of ducks more than 120 specimens. People who cross the river feed them from the bridge. I took with me NL 8X42 and HG 8x30. The superiority of the NL became more evident in natural light...

    Impressed by my new Nikon Monarch HG 8X30

    Hi Henry, thanks for the info. I had no idea about the issue with the 2 mm exit pupil, and as far as the image quality of the photos was concerned, I noticed that the accuracy of the photos decreases dramatically when they are enlarged on the computer screen. Probably with a more decent camera...

    Impressed by my new Nikon Monarch HG 8X30

    Regarding CA, I saw a slightly higher level of CA in Monarch 10x42, which is not a surprise to me because I know from experience that usually smaller-sized objective binoculars have a lower level of chromatic aberrations. The chromatic aberrations in this small 8x30 HG are at about the same...

    Hi Beth, Noctivid has the most beautiful design in my opinion too . Finally the fog cleared and a few rays of sunshine appeared, I had the opportunity to look out the window of my room with nikon HG 8x30 and the impression is that it will be my most used binoculars. Very small and light...

    Impressed by my new Nikon Monarch HG 8X30

    I know what you're thinking: This man has 6,000 euros in binoculars and doesn't have a decent photo camera, I'm sorry about that. Maybe I'll solve this problem in the near future.;)
