    Ultravid HD+ 7x42 fair used price

    I'm considering the purchase of a used Ultravid HD+ 7x42 and was wondering what others would consider a fair used price. I'm not terribly familiar with this bin and don't see that many used, so I don't really have much of an idea. I checked the serial no. with Leica and confirmed a 2015 date...

    New EDG 8x42

    Visited my favorite optics shop this today and found a brand new EDG 8x42 in the discontinued case marked down to $1399. Beautiful sample with the quickest, most smooth focus knob I've ever felt. Giving hard thought to trading in my SLC WB's. Probably not an overly sensible idea; however...

    Dust inside Victory FL's

    The dust and debris inside both barrels of my Victory Fl 7x42's, is slowly but surely starting to get the better of me. I've read all the old strings on dust both here and over on Cloudy Nights, but it has not put the matter to rest in my mind. When Zeiss recently serviced the barrel...

    Victory FL 7x42 - more problems

    Just today have found another issue my Victory FL 7x42's that is really irritating. There is a distinctive rattle coming from somewhere inside. I can't tell which barrel, and I cannot visually see anything, but there is a definite noise. Seems to be somewhere in the eyepiece end. A while...

There seems to be a circular reflection around the edge of the image in the right barrel only. Guessing it's some sort of glare off the objective or rim of the eyepiece -...

    Bargain Dialyt 7X42 B GA T*P* Classic

    I'm no expert on the Dialyt 7X42 BGA T*P* other than what I read about them on the forum, but I just watched a mint pair sell on ebay this evening for $610. I believe these were the latest WP version as they had the two grooves on the center mechanism. Am I wrong, or is that a really great...

    Victory FL 7x42 NIB

    I'm new to the forum, and this is my first post (other than the Say Hello) page, so I thought I'd start off with a struggle I'm having. A dealer very near me who has one remaining NIB Victory FL 7x42 with Loutec for $1499 firm. I've look through it half a dozen times and can't decide what to...

    Greetings from NE Ohio

    Hello, Have been reading the binocular and scope forums for months and finally decided to post. I'm much more a general wildlife watcher than a birder (sister is the serious birder), but my wife and I live beside a 400 acre wildlife / lake / marsh area that sits along a migratory route, so...
