You need to listen more to those small voices in your head!

If the number of Leica binoculars bought this year does not succeed ten you do not have to worry, there is room for more.....How about one/month?

I think my wife might just notice it I started collecting Leicas, though I do have plans to buy a couple more bins fairly soon.

Truth be told Steve, the teeny-tiny voice in my head keeps on whispering...

Yes, my Nikon 8x30 EII's are new stock and they are improved but they still are a little darker and don't have the contrast or sparkle the Habicht's do. I don't think you can beat a Habicht in a porro. They are the alpha porro's with EL glass and EL coatings. I have learned how to deal with their idiosyncrasies. I have all three Habicht's 8x30, 7x42 and the 10x40. The EII does have it's advantage's including a smoother focus and more comfortable eye cups but it is not waterproof or sealed from dust either like the Habicht's. You can buy the Habicht's new for about $700.00 on Ebay from the UK.

I think you've answered your original post tenex, quite succinctly, regarding the Noctivid.
