I've had the Habichts in 8X30, 7X42, and 10X40. Truly beautiful binoculars. If you wear glasses don't even consider the 8X30 or 10X40. It's a waste of time. I did everything imaginable to try to make them work. If no eyeglasses sure, give them a try. The 7X42 works "pretty" good. The fold-down eye cups are what they are. Focus is stiff. A SV 8X32 and the 8X30 Habicht are worlds apart where ergonomics are concerned. The only porro prism binocular I've EVER had that came close to being "user friendly" and was optically excellent was a Nikon SE 8X32 CF. I sold it because I NEVER used it. I still have the Habicht 7X42....WHY I don't know.

If nostalgia is one's thing you can't beat the Habicht. That's about it IMO.
