    Meopta Meopro HD 8x32--first impressions and thoughts

    Just a little update. After using it for a while during vacation I still think it's a very nice bino. By using the first click stop position of the eyecups and then bracing it to my brow, I was able to completely eliminate the glare. The binoculars would be probably described as "f├╝hrig" in...

    Meopta Meopro HD 8x32--first impressions and thoughts

    So a little update -- I took it on a 1 hour walk yesterday. Weather was kind of crazy -- first sunny then clouds moved in very quickly from the west. As suspected the Meopta Meopro HD 8x32 was slightly susceptible to glare and flare. It can be largely eliminated when I twist in the eye cups a...

    Meopta Meopro HD 8x32--first impressions and thoughts

    :D thanks. There is some writing on it: "Keep your friends close, but your cookies closer." :D I thought it is hilarious. Even my wife likes it and normally she is not much a fan of my choice in shirts :ROFLMAO: .

    Meopta Meopro HD 8x32--first impressions and thoughts

    Thanks! I forgot to mention one detail - the strap is really nice. It clips on two smaller parts that stay connected to the bino and even the rainguard. So you could take off the strap for use at home but still have the rainguard tethered to the bino. Good solution to avoid the lenses getting...

    Meopta Meopro HD 8x32--first impressions and thoughts

    Hi guys and gals. So I came across a slightly used Meopta Meopro HD 8x32. Always wanted to try a Meopta and the price was about half of a new one (didn't we have that discussion about resale value? One man's loss is another man's gain, I guess :D). It arrived yesterday and I compared it to a few...
