Got to give them credit in trying to grab some of the market share. I wonder how the focus wheel will function after a year.

Well I have had an Imagic 8x42 and Traveller 8x32 since 2017 and their focusers are still absolutely fine so the omens for Aurora are pretty good.

32mm does outsell 42mm generally. Or at least it did when we had shops open!

Right now, no plans for a 32mm at the top of our range.

Sometimes a picture says a lot more than words - so here goes. DBA VHD+ 42mm, EL 32mm, Aurora 42mm. Why compromise? :)

Just think though: If you made a 32 mm Aurora you could place it beside a Leica UVHD+ 32 mm and have us all placing orders!

I have had the Imagic 8x42, 10x42 and Traveller 8x42 for 5yrs, they’re all still running buttery smooth and better than some of the gritty stiction I’ve experienced on alpha brands costing more than twice as much.
