    New Swarovski EL 10x42 v. NL Pure 10x42

    Last week, after extensive research, I acquired a brand new pair of EL 10x42 (3rd Generation) for a good discount. I looked closely at the NL Pure 10x42 as well. However, the main advantage of the NL seems to be a wider FOV, which just didn't justify the $1,000+ price premium. In my experience...

    Test for Phase-Corrective Prism Coatings

    Today I received my new pair of pristine condition Leitz 7x35 BA binoculars from @DLedig (thanks, Dave). They are amazingly bright and clear for a 32-year old binocular! This pair dates from 1986 (s/n 964920) and I was curious whether they might have received one of the early phase-correction...

    Retro Search: Zeiss Dialyt or Leitz Trinovid?

    Thanks again for your advice and counsel, which was very useful. When confronted with an abundance of choices, the solution is often to acquire one of each! And yes, I'll admit I suffer from the highly-infectious GAB Syndrome (Get Another Binocular)... After trying to decide between the...

    RSPB’s New Logo

    In the worldwide conservation movement, there is a long history of controversial and "failed" attempts at changing names and logos. Some prominent examples include: WWF: Originally founded in the 1960s as "World Wildlife Fund", in the 1990s the leadership of WWF International decided to change...

    Zeiss 10x40B T P dating

    @garymh So it would appear that Zeiss continued using "West Germany" in its logo for at least several years after reunification in 1990?

    Best Retro Leitz?

    Good advice, thanks. I would consider a Trinovid-3 series "Ultra" BA/BN if they weren't so damned ugly! I just love the form factor of the Trinovid-2 series, mostly because of their superior aesthetics but also because they pack a lot of performance into a small package. I guess that's why Leica...

    Best Retro Leitz?

    Howdy! I'm new to the forum but a longtime birder. I'm currently carrying a pair of Zeiss Conquest HD 10x42 that I was given by Zeiss when I worked for the National Audubon Society. When traveling light, I carry a pair of Zeiss TL 10x25. I'm now in the market for a pair of midsize retro bins...

    Retro Search: Zeiss Dialyt or Leitz Trinovid?

    Howdy! While I'm new to the forum, I've been a birder for many years; bought my first pair of Zeiss bins duty-free at the Frankfurt airport when it was still in West Germany! My current go-to bins are a pair of Zeiss Conquest HD 10x42, with a pair of compact Zeiss TL 10x25 for travel. I'm...
