    EL 8.5x42 Mk1 vs new kids on the block

    Interestingly they have a green focus wheel and eyecups. Most current adverts show these parts to be dark grey / black, and retail for around £950. Enjoy them.

    EL 8.5x42 Mk1 vs new kids on the block

    Dennis, in case you hadn't noticed your suggested purchase is for a 32mm as opposed to the thread about a 42mm, so possibly somewhat muddies the advice proffered. Several agreements that for the money, these are a favourable purchase but that's down to the OP now.

    EL 8.5x42 Mk1 vs new kids on the block

    Really, my quick converter gave me 742 euros at today's exchange rate 1:1.10. Perhaps our clocks going back has scrambled my brain.

    EL 8.5x42 Mk1 vs new kids on the block

    Another vote for this. Also you can return them to be rearmoured at your convenience. Under £700 for an Alpha. A new Zeiss Conquest HD 8 x 42 is nearly a £1000, 30% more than what is being asked for.
