I love the Leica 8x20 Ultravid BL for its excellent optics, handling, and construction. The Zeiss 8x25 Terra is much larger and the first two units I've tried have been unacceptable (loose hinges and optical flaws). When I receive the next warranty replacement from Zeiss (currently pending), I'll let you know if it is good.

What is it with Zeiss QA lately? I keep hearing about these QA issues with their binoculars even the new Victory 8x25's. The older Zeiss were high quality almost all the time. Do they need some management changes or what? New QA Director?
