I fully agree - one of the most underrated binos that I know.

Yes thanks guys they are great, I am not a binocular expert like some on here but wow, I know when I pick up a bit of quality, they are wonderful, the S2 Meopta 82 HD scope is also brill with the 20-70x eyepiece, well pleased.

I wish they would produce an 8x42 HD... I realize the the 8x32 is very nice optically, and when I used it without glasses it worked flawlessly, but the 8x42 would work with my glasses so that would be preferable.

The MeoPro HD is a very nice value, but I think gives up a little to the MeoStar HD/Cabela's Euro HD series.

I have a late model 2018 8X42 Meostar, I personally do not think it needs HD, the lens coatings have been up graded, since I also have the 2012 version which I have compared it to.

I bought the same some years ago. Just lately I wanted to switch to the Nikon Monarch HG 8x42 but first I had dot get rid of the Meostar 10x42 HD. The price I asked for couldn't be realized - and now I am happy that my plan didn't work.

Andy/dries1, would you mind describing the comparison between the 2012 and 2018 version of you 8x42 Meostar B1?

Elmer,

Sorry for responding late. The difference between the view of the 2012 and 2018 is very subtle, but the 18 is just slightly brighter. The 2012 is still a great glass, and I would not hesitate to say it is better than many other 8X42s out there today.
