I didn't get the 8x30 because of the veiling glare, despite its superb optical performance in favourable lighting conditions. Try the Habicht 10x40. It is MUCH better with regard to veiling glare, as good as an up-to-date roof with the exception of the Noctivid. It's also MUCH better than e.g. the SV 8x32 which is IMNSHO one of the weaker 8x30s/8x32s in that respect.
And if you can cope with the smallish field of view, try the 7x42. It has NO veiling glare. None. It's also easier to use with its large exit pupils and its larger depth of field than either the 8x30 or the 10x40 due to its low magnification.
