    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    I just ordered the Zeiss Terra 8x25 online. With this 50 euro cashback it was hard to ignore and justify to buying a CL 8x25. I want to leave it in my jacket pocket if needed. I won't do that with a 700 euro binocular. I will let you know what my thoughts are when it arrives, although I cannot...

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. This is a note I do not understand. I have also read that the higher the contrast is the more usefull a binocular is in low light? Because the colours will fade and it is the contrast that will pop up shapes in the dark... Am I wrong with this?

    Did you also test the Terra 8x25? I could/can not find it on your site.

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    It sounds like the CL 8x25 is not really a addition for you, because you already have the Terra and state that the CL is not really better than the Terra. Did you keep the CL? I know you received it as a gift, but I wonder if you have swapped it for a smaller Leica or Curio or maybe intent/tempt...

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    Here you write the AFOV of the Swarovski is bigger. Didn't you mean the Zeiss like JavierV stated? The FOV should be the same, but the AFOV is bigger? at the Zeiss because of the 8,1 power of the Zeiss (on the CL it is 7,8). I don't know if that is true, but I have read that.

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    Is it true that the Swarovski is more compact and will fit more pockets? Or is that neglectable?

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    You puzzle me here a bit. Both are 85 cm, but the zeiss strap is longer? Can you maybe clear this up a bit?

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    Oh, one more question. How long is the strap on both binos? I really like wearing binoculars bandolier style (like a handbag). Is that possible with both binos?

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    Thanks for the nice comparison! I might like the "bulkiness" of the zeiss, because my hands aren't that small. Interesting to hear that the zeiss is a bit more comfortable to use and that the optics are as good as the swarovksi. I understand what you say about the swaro feeling. I think the...

    Swarovski CL 8x25 vs Zeiss Terra ED 8x25: one more comparison

    Thanks for your sharing! Is that the reason why you wanted to buy the Leica 8x20? Having a even smaller pair? I am thinking about buying a Terra 8x25 or CL 8x25, because I want to put them in my pocket and bring them with me. I have big pockets, so I assume they really are pocket binoculars as...
