    NL Pure Image Flatness - Good or Bad?

    NL Pure Image Flatness - Good or Bad?

    They work fine for me, I don't wear glasses. The 10x needs a little bit more care for eye placement, plastic and soft rubber, comfortable. For a binocular at this price the eye cups do seem cheap and should have been of a higher quality.

    NL Pure Image Flatness - Good or Bad?

    Leicas have a beautiful depth of field, closest that I have seen to a porro, my 8x Ultravid was wonderful in this regard. Depth of field and immersion are different, I always put the immersive nature of a binocular down to the AFOV and a few other factors in the design. If you were looking...
