Ya killing me here 🙄. Now I’m going to need one of these, if not the Silver line at the very least the BL. Does anybody know if they made BL and Silverline in HD+?Agreed; I love the way the Ultravid series looks and feels, and I find the way its optical design renders images to be beautiful; there's an unstressed and relaxing quality to it that's difficult to describe. (And although I've become used to the rolling-globe effect of field-flattening in other binoculars, I still prefer panning with the UV's old-school pincushion distortion.)
Probably there's some new-toy bias since it's the newest one to arrive, but if I had to choose one binocular, this Silverline would have to be it; the build quality is confidence-inspiring, it packs 42 millimetres of premium glass in a package that's barely any heavier and bulkier than most high-end 32s, and it just has that aura of being something special.
For me, they're without question the most-appealing ones to pick up, and would be the most difficult to part with. Unless I got my hands on the 32-mm Safari version, maybe...
