    What differentiates the 8x50B Nobilem from the 8x50B Nobilem Super?

    Nice glass Andy! I think you were looking quite a while for a set, no?

    Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 vs Nikon ProStaff 7S 8x42

    @ Diverdude1 Both binoculars seem overpriced compared to what's available in US. It may be the case that binoculars simply cost more in China than in the US, but if not, I might look around for a better value. It may not pay to ship a binocular into China, but for comparison's sake the Terra ED...

    What case are the Leica 8x42 Trinovid HD owners using?

    Thanks. Since posting, I put my fists inside and stretched it out a bit, which seemed to help. If I need more wiggle room, I'll try your idea. Shame they can't be bought cheap in the UK.

    Tento 10x50 binocular

    I agree with Jring: a good 10-power Tento center focus is not a bad option. You might also consider a 7-power if one comes up for sale.

    What case are the Leica 8x42 Trinovid HD owners using?

    The Lowepro case arrived. It's a snug fit for Trini 8x42 HD but very well padded.

    What case are the Leica 8x42 Trinovid HD owners using?

    I just ordered the Lowepro case for my Trini 8x42HD on ebay (Robert's Camera) for $10 free ship. I've been using a so-so aftermarket case but this looks to be an improvement.

    Tento 10x50 binocular

    Used Russian/USSR binoculars deliver very good value for the price here in the US too.

    Swarovski 10x32

    I'd contact Swarovski directly; they may just ship you a new pair.

    8X30 SLC

    Hmmm. It might be hard to fetch that much for a 2009 NEU when for $50 more a buyer can get: https://www.sportsmans.com/hunting-gear-supplies/optics-binoculars-scopes-rangefinders/binoculars/swarovski-cl-companion-compact-binoculars/p/1496691 ~ Jack

    A new (old) toy - Leitz Trinovid 6x24

    CZ 8x30

    I have the same pair as the OP and wondered about it. Good glass!

    CZ 8x30

    Thanks LPT. On that model I've always been a bit curious that it lacks "Jena" on the label yet that it doesn't have "Made in West Germany" on the hinge cover. Oberkochen makes sense.

    CZ 8x30

    They look 100% authentic to me too. Just wondering if they were produced at a different Zeiss plant, and if so, possibly where.

    CZ 8x30

    German made, but not labeled CZ Jena. Is this significant?

    Monocular for one handed person

    Sounds like a great starting point. Good suggestion.

    Is it normal to see grease inside binoculars.

    My 2 cents: Nothing good ever happened by allowing foreign particles to remain inside binoculars. Send them in.

    Urgent cleaning help needed...help!

    Laurence. Sorry to hear about your health issues and hope for the best possible outcome. Charcoal and or baking soda sound intriguing, or wrapping. ~ Jack

    Leica Monovid 8 X 20 vs. Swarovski NL Pure 8 X 32 For Bird Watching?

    About motion sickness using binoculars: Have you tried multiple binoculars and found all produce the same affect? (A single sample might be misaligned). If all binoculars produce motion sickness, then a monocular for walks in the park and a nice spotting scope for the porch might be the way to...

    WW 2 U Boot binocular repair

    Netflix US has some episodes, but I expect not very current. Will someone please provide Season/Episode number so I can watch the repair if/when made available? Thanks. Jack
