    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    All these things are likely true, but the 1st seems truer than the others (at least for me). I wish @Imans66 well on his difficult quest. I hope it ends for him at least as well as it did for me: I'm happy, now, though I certainly ended up in the "not perfect" box (yet have no intention of...

    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    I don't underestimate them in the slightest. They give a very nice viewing experience. But for my search, they were off the list immediately as being too big. I ended up with my Zeiss FLs because they were (just barely) within my size requirements (which were and are very real) and even then I...

    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

This afternoon, I was taking a break from work and standing on my balcony with a cup...

    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    I'm not going to argue "wow/pop" with you, for sure :-O A bit difficult to define, no? For me, my 8x32 FLs just kind of get out of my way, do their job and give me an excellent view with no optical flaws I especially notice (I'm not saying there are none, just not any I find especially...

    My Quest for the Perfect 8x32

    I also embarked on a similar search, a few years ago now. I find it interesting that your idea of "perfection" (which, as you say, doesn't really exist) ended up so different from mine. You're selling your FLs, while that's what I ended up with! :eek!: That, of course, likely means that we...
