Swarovski EL 10x42 WB
Very good in backlight. Until about 2004, EL 10x42 markedly
colder hue than the Swarovski SLC and other competitors, but
this was corrected. Rubber Reinforcement with good traction and the open
kikkerttubus structure provides a good grip on the binoculars. Lack of
rubber on the inner side of tubusene lets you easily will freeze at your fingertips
in cold weather. Body constructed of magnesium, which provides low weight and
good robustness. Unusual small exchange on the focus wheel (from nærfokus to
infinity must focus wheel rotated two turns), allows the telescope is not
is quick to focus, but the precise focusing easier. Color: Green.
One of the best 10x42 binoculars, especially good in the sun.

Leica Ultravid 10x42 HD
Very good in the backlight (small blur). Very light. Unusually good resolution
makes binoculars a great choice among birdwatchers and hunters
prioritizes performance in daylight. Because of the high contrast and finely
it is also one of the best 10x42-binoculars
in the twilight. Focus Wheel of titanium with rubber grip. Light and compact.
Body of magnesium, which is more durable than aluminum and has
lower specific gravity. Rubber Reinforcement with a good grasp ability. Selectable color:
black el. green. Also available lærkledt model (BL). One of
the best 10x42 binoculars, especially in daylight.

kikkerttubus = binocular barrel
tubusene = barrel

That's what reading Dutch bin reviews does for you
