    Opticron 8x24 Traveller BGA vs Leica Trinovid 8x20 BCA

    The Curio is a stunner for sure, the only thing I didn't like about them was that they don't hang straight and tend to bounce about on the strap and dig in your chest whereas the Zeiss pockets hang flat. I went to my local optics dealers today with the hope of trying out some Ultravid 8x20...

    I tried out the Opticron 8x24 yesterday. Their eye relief was no good for me, even though 15mm is usually enough for my glasses. Oddly there wasn't enough focus overtravel to use without my glasses either. Not sure if there was something wrong with this sample or that's just how they are. I've...
