With these 2 Leica models and sizes, you are comparing apples to oranges, and that is true with
any top optics. Comparing a 42 with a 50 is much different. Now throw in 32 mm binoculars.

So that means don't try to choose which is best on here, that is left to the eyes of the beholder.

Very true Jerry,
Back to my original question that I need to answer for myself, is the CA control better on the 10x50UV+ vs. the 10x42NV. That’s the only question I really have. And yes, the only way to know for sure is for me to do a side by side comparison through MY eyes.

I've read with interest all through these posts about the 42 / 50 choice and those words 'Kodachrome of binoculars' would be all I needed to read to make a choice, if it were me choosing!

Come to think of it I used to shoot Kodachrome in a Leica M6 and that combination was really exciting. Often the pictures felt better than actual subject matter itself.
