    A few quick thoughts, 7X35 vs. 8X32

    Thanks for the reply 😊. The 10x42 is light but bulky, typical for a porro. The Retrovid might actually be heavier, but so sleek and definitely lighter than the UV NV. I think you’re right about Jack O’Connor.

    A few quick thoughts, 7X35 vs. 8X32

    Now that it’s discontinued, I’m thinking about the 10x40. I’m pretty set on six, seven and eight power binoculars, but the SE is my only ten. It seems like it could be a nice, trim ten power with Leica optics.

    A few quick thoughts, 7X35 vs. 8X32

    I’m certain without any inside information that Leica uses the highest quality glass available, Leica is famous for their camera lenses. I’ve always assumed the CA, what little there is, was a design trade off from fitting all those optics in that compact Leica package. It seems that Leica, from...

    A few quick thoughts, 7X35 vs. 8X32

    We used to get the Eddie Bauer catalog and drool all over the cool, rich man’s gear. Eddie Bauer catered to the wealthy outdoorsman and the catalog was full of all that high end gear. That’s where I first saw the old Leitz Trinovid roof prism binoculars. Wow! They looked so futuristic and...
