Leica Noctivid 8x42 design flaws and review - owners please check (1 Viewer)

I really like the wonderful warm color of the Noct, and the very easy view but I have also seen the painful glare against a winter sky. I think that in this forum one could just say that the Noct is the current Leica alpha, each company having its strengths and weaknesses, and move on to other topics.

Mike drop.

Yes, Nikon E11 8x30, latest version.
Obvious point was each binocular has it's quirks when you get your magnifying glass out, and most don't seem to affect performance much if at all.
TM's website is one of my favourites btw, and I agree with so much, especially about 'old-fashioned rendering' from lenses and looking for '3D pop'.

That glue makes me smile and love them more, and really, when you look at the whole package, they compare very well to the latest premium roofs.
