I really believe the issues with my Euro HD 8x32 were caused by the fact that it was a return. I think the binoculars had problems when the first owner purchased them so he returns it and Cabela's sends it back to Meopta for repair and Meopta tries to fix it unsuccessfully and returns it to Cabela's. Cabela's then sells it on clearance and after a bit of use the problems return because the binocular was defective in the first place. Just my theory.
........and some people believe in UFO's..........
