I wish I had my Nixon SE 8x32's back from Nikon (in for adjustment) to do a side by side.

These are actually pretty nice but first impressions count for a lot and my initial impression is they aren't quite what I hoped for. But like many of you have found, sometimes you need to use binoculars a little to warm up to them (like the Nixon SE's for me).
Now I think you've got it. Good to hear things are working out well
for you.

Thanks! I wish they were working out well for you.

Regardless, these went back. Too many ergonomic issues with eye placement and problems with stray reflections (both veiling and ghosting).
