    Swarovski SLC. Zeiss Conquest Nikon MHG and Vortex Razors 10x42

    I don't notice it when using the bins normal use, like I said the SLCs seem to have more depth to the view than the Razors, subtle, but it's there. The Razors don't have field flattners but any pin cushion is barley noticeable. Personally, I'm not really into the technical specs of bins. If the...

    Can anybody answer my question about the pincushion distortion on the SLC? Is it part of the design?

    Swarovski SLC. Zeiss Conquest Nikon MHG and Vortex Razors 10x42

    This is from S&S archery review. Mid-Day Glassing: During the sunny mid-day testing, it was difficult to tell any difference between the two. Without putting them on a tripod, you would be hard pressed to see a difference at all. Both were crisp, clear, and produced true colors. The two do...

    Swarovski SLC. Zeiss Conquest Nikon MHG and Vortex Razors 10x42

    Do Swarovski build in this amount of pin cushion to give their bins a subtle 3D effect?. I did get the feeling of more depth in the view with the SLC's over the razors.

    False colour? To my eyes the colours on the Conquest and MHG were too saturated. The blacks on the MHG were too black and to my eyes it was harder to see the detail in the dogs hair compared to the Razor. Maybe false colour is not the correct description. To my eyes the colours were deeper and...

    Who says the latest SLC were designed more as an hunting binocular? Was it Swarovski ? I didn't say my son said they all look the same, he said the BOTH look the same. I have other bins he has looked through and he does notice a difference. You say the China made Vortex are step down in build...

    Like said, don't believe everything you read on the internet’. The build quality is as good as anything else. It they had Swarovski badges on everyone would be raving about them.

    Swarovski SLC. Zeiss Conquest Nikon MHG and Vortex Razors 10x42

    Just noticed this, lying on the bed watching the telly, thought I would check out the close focussing. On the window sill we have a square porcelain pot, with a circle pattern on it, it's about 6in square and flat on all sides. When I use the SLCs, the pot looks quite dished, with the Vortex it...

    To be honest, I was perfectly happy with the Optolyths and the B&L Elites before the internet came along. Lol Ron

    Swarovski SLC. Zeiss Conquest Nikon MHG and Vortex Razors 10x42

    Ok, here goes.A couple of years ago I sold my Optolyth 12x50 and my Bausch and Lomb 10x42, Both were 30 years plus old and not weather proof. So I started look at some new bins, Vortex Razor, Zeiss Conquest and the Nikon MHG seemed to be the top three in my price range here in the UK. So I...
