    Does the Swarovski SLC 8x42 HD have the rolling ball effect while panning?

    Hi Tom-1, sorry it's taken my a year or two to see (maybe remember?) your reply. Hope all is well with you and points taken from your post. I still have the two SLC x42s and used them this morning though currently other things are taking my time by choice or necessity as the case may be. All...

    Does the Swarovski SLC 8x42 HD have the rolling ball effect while panning?

    To ReinierB as not sure if my 'quote click' has worked: Hello Reinier, I know we've corresponded about the SLCs not long ago but just to say after taking both out just this morning before the sun was far up in its ascent I still unreservedly prefer the 8 for the reasons you ask about in your...

But I couldn't now explain or describe...

    Does the Swarovski SLC 8x42 HD have the rolling ball effect while panning?

    Hi Tom-1, though I mentioned other aspects as well, I knew you were talking specifically about the internal construction. My feeling is that as with the rest of the binocular (cosmetic appearance, solidity etc) the internal construction does not look crude. It is simpler but it works fine and...

    Does the Swarovski SLC 8x42 HD have the rolling ball effect while panning?

    Ground Control to Grampa Tom, I have the final Swarovski-badged x42 and they actually look fine and well made, including if you look in through the front or objective end. Their contemporary ELs look to me a bit more stylish but I maintain that the SLCs unusually look far better in reality than...
