RSPB HDX 10x42: To buy or not to buy

I am faced with the same old question - go for Swarovski or not. Having decided Swarovision if fantastic BUT not worth the price for me, I am back to RSPB HDX 10x42. Like it a lot, its a lot better than the RSPB HD10x42 I had earlier. The question is - should I look at other medium range bins first before I buy. If so, what would you suggest. I am partial to 10x.

I like the HDX also, but if I was to go 10x42 at that price point I`d go with the Meopta HD, a bit heavier but worth the extra burden I feel.

Thanks Torview. I can only see links to online shops. Do you know of a place where I can compare the two in the UK? Jaysan.
