    Looking for a good 10x42

    Interesting comment on eyecup size as well. Small eyecups always cause blackouts for me. The Torics are quite standard for a full size bino and I’ve not experienced blackouts with them. I suppose different face shapes, eye socket size, and how one holds the glasses to ones face makes a...

    Pretty happy with my Torics for less than half the price of the Meoptas. The Pro Airs are good looking and nice to hear the optics are good as well. Not sure why Meopta decided to use the the MeoPro name though as those are quite mediocre and don’t handle glare well. One would think Meopta would...

    Oops scratch that. Ran across that when I was looking for a 10x42 for myself. Discontinued model. Their current top of the line DBA VHD+ might be worth a look though.

    The Toric eyecups are longer. However Zeiss makes a longer eyecup for the Conquest. They’ll send you a pair for free if you call them.

    My understanding is they are both made by Kamkura. It’s very common in the optics Industry for one manufacturer to make the same bino with a different body style for different companies. They spec out the same and the differences like focus speed and contrast due to different coatings are subtle...

    Looking for a good 10x42

    The HGs are nice because they are lightweight and have a wide fov. If weight doesn’t matter the SLC would be a good one but I’m not fond of the focuser and still can’t understand how such an expensive glass can have such a bad one. If weight isn’t a problem at all I’d throw the Kowa Genesis in...
