    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    Congrats on reaching an end point! A few things I’m curious to know more about when you have a chance: 1. Would love to hear more about why the Trinovid ended up being a dark horse late entry contender, since you dismissed it early in the thread and thus haven’t really discussed it and...

    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    Well that's interesting. Are these binoculars even available yet? The biggest flaw (and IMO the only real optical flaw) of the Meostars is the weak blue transmission which is substandard compared to the coatings used by Swaro, Leica, etc. My Cabelas Euro HD supposedly have newer coatings...

    Or maybe you’ve conflated/transposed the Conquest HD with the Trinovid HD? The 8x32 Trinnie HD has a 372’ FOV spec.

    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    I think you are confusing the 8x42 for the 8x32. The 8x32 Conquest HD has a huge FOV, 8 degree in spec and measured to be slightly wider (closer to 8.1) in reality. It’s true they are on the bulky side for an 8x32, so not telling you to like them if they don’t need your needs, but just want to...
