Do you mean 10x became to hard to hold? Why didn't you care for 8x?
Yes, 10x is a little shaky in my hands these days.
I had hoped allbinos would do rankings for 10x32 binoculars so I could compare his results to my own but that never materialized. I always thought my 10x32 el was a much more impressive instrument than my 8x32 el's. It even had a perfect focuser which I have never seen since on a Swaro. Must have gotten the elite of the elite with that one!!!
