Hi Obserwatorek,

Thanks for the additional information about the eyepiece construction.

And apologies for wrongly crediting the x-ray image.
Google Translate showed the caption: 'Zdjęcie rentgenowskie lornetki Nikon Action EX 12x50 CF. Fot. Obserwatorek'
as: 'X-ray image of Nikon Action EX 12x50 CF binoculars. Photo Watchers'.

So 'Photo by Obserwatorek' is what it should have been!

I just got to try a pair of the 12x50 HD+ and had a really hard time wanting to leave the store without them. Much more enjoyable than I'd expected, not to mention very stable and ironically, I suppose because of the high magnification, felt like they actually had a relatively wider view than it seemed like they should have.

I will get a set of these at some time and should have just stayed away from them in the first place.

I agree, they are very, very nice!

Apparent FOV does often tend to increase with magnification. Of course the real field narrows, but not by quite as much as you'd expect.
