    Dusk light performance relative to weight, NL Pure 10x32 vs 10x42

    When it comes a sunny day I enjoy bird watching MUCH more. All colors pop and it is a treat to use the binos. That said, at sunny days I prefer to use 10x32 but If I see that there is a chance that the sunny day will become cloudy I rather take 10x42 binos. I believe the light gathering in x42...

    Swarovski NL vs EL

    As Paultricounty has said they are quite similar. The mayor differences are the wider FoV and the focuser. EL had that missing for me, smooth focus mechanism. I got the NL in 32 and have to say that there is quite some FLARE in some angles.

    What makes binos "pop" in specific scenarios?

    Pop and never stop, well buy one and you will see how you soon be eager to buy another one soon. What they have mention earlier is correct, the more money you pay the more features you will get. THOUGH no bino will be absolutely perfect. Some are the ergonomics, some are the focus wheel, some...

    Problem with green coating of EL SV 8x32

    :ROFLMAO: So the new armour is environmentally friendly but the objective covers "could" cause cancer??? Very well for the environment but try not to touch the objective covers too much. Birth defect?? uffff I guess Peter parker´s spider changed DNA less than the objetive covers

    Swarovski EL with or without field flattener lenses

    For that price go ahead. I got too a second hand EL production year 2008 and they are great. Even the focus wheel is much better than the actual ELs (production year 2021) The ones that I am talking about are 8x32 EL year 2008 and they have great focus wheel, quite smooth even though it has...
