The very first test of any binocular should be..... 'can I use these' ...... then followed by optical specifications. If they do not 'fit' you, either in the hands, or upto your eye, then they are useless, regardless of their optical quality. People seem hung up on specifications, and other peoples views. But there is a reason there are so many to choose from.
I understand you were unable to test due to pandemic, but it's never worth the gamble. At least Swaro's hold good value, so you shouldn't lose too much when you change them, and it'll be worth it when you get 'your' perfect pair..... which a million and one people will tell you aren't as good as the ones they chose lol !!!

I agree. I am continuing to use the 8x32 EL for hiking while I look for a high quality 7x42/8x42 to replace them.
