    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    I believe there are a few Japanese websites that sell the EDG’s for around $1500 give or take a bit. A few people here have posted where they got them. My opinion is that MHG are fantastic binoculars that fall into what I call the sweet spot of what you get at the price point , the overall...

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    EDG is the standard that all others should strive to be. Although it’s a greased mechanism so get a little tight in cold weather. All the Leica’s stay exactly the same regardless of temperature. I really think you had a bad example of the MGH. The ones I’ve used and currently own are very...

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    Yes. I’d then suggest any other country of origin and manufacture , like I’m doing now. Some certainly could and would continue to buy from the communist regime as many would suggest another pipeline with Russia. What could go wrong.

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    Hi Scott, What was it about the focuser on the MHG you didn't like? Was it that specific example? Ive used almost a dozen of these in multiple configurations and all but two had what I would consider very good and enjoyable focusers. The SF and SFL are probably one of the best of the best, but...

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    I did a short side by side comparison review of the Nikon SE and the Zeiss SF both in 8x32 back in 2023. Nikon SE and Zeiss SF 8x32 comparison. Paul

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    I hear you, my wife says the same thing. All kidding aside, I guess the trick is to find the best balance if we were to only have one pair of binoculars. A lot of guys that don't want to have a collection will have a few to meet different observing criteria. If were hiking short distances and...

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    Sorry I meant SE not E2. If you can’t see the difference, or much of one between the SE and SF , then why would we even be considering something in that price range, certainly all those $1000 binoculars your looking at would compare with the SE, and would have better eye relief. Maybe that’s...

    What binoculars are as good as Nikon Superior E?

    Id start by asking you a question, how much of a difference or improvement do you see from your 2000 E2 and the SF? I’ve compared every one you mentioned side by side with both an early SE (301-305) and the slightly improved last run (550) of the SE’s. I’d say there’s not much separating the...
