    8x32 EL with fast focus?

    Thank you very much (both Joe H and 1894) for your comments. I am a hunter myself too so low-light situations are important. However, as 1894 mentioned, I have come to notice that a top-quality 8x32 is all I would need. I once compared my Niokn Hg 8x32s side by side with my Swarovski 8.5x43s and...

    8x32 EL with fast focus?

    -Good question! I am a big fan of fine optics (binos, camera lenses etc.) and can't help wanting the best(s). If I had money, I would have bought EVERYTHING made by Leica. -I like the shape/feel of Swarovski ELs alot. I am getting (as you can read in the above posts) mixed messages about their...

    8x32 EL with fast focus?

    Now you are making me feel bad John! You are right though, fine binos are not items to sell, they are works of art and extensions of our eyes. The problem is I have too many of them (two Leicas -10x25 and 12x50, a pair of 8.5x43 Swarovski ELs, a pair of 8x32 Nikon HGs -which are FANTASTIC by the...

    My 10x40s cannot get jealous since I just sold them to a friend! I might have a problem with my Nikon 8x32 HG's though ;)

    8x32 EL with fast focus?

    Ikka, Are you suggesting Zeiss 8x32 FLs are noticeably superior to Swarovski 8x32 EL? As I said, I haven't seen the new Zeiss series in Canada yet but I am looking forward to cheking them out. By the way, what do you mean by "lateral colour"? Do you mean Chromatic Aberration? cheers,

    8x32 EL with fast focus?

    So there is no need to wait for a re-designed focus knob on 8x32 Els. This is good news! I am considering buying a pair of these. Zeiss 8x32 FLs haven't arrived in Canada yet but I don't think I will miss any thing going with the Swarovskis. I already own a 8.5x42 EL and they are fantastic. I...

    8x32 EL with fast focus?

    Hi Guys, I was wondering if 8x32 EL's are going to get fast focus as well. I handled a pair of these long ago and I cannot remember how the focus was. Is the focus on 8x32 EL's already fast or is it more like standard 8.5x42 ELs? Thanks
