And they are happy with a 91% transmission?!?
Seriously?
To me, they are such cheap looking ugly Binos...

If you can look through bins with 70°, sharp to the edge, and 91%, you will not discuss about the design :king:

The 'lowish' transmission figure is likely due to the amount of glass required to achieve those large AFov's.

Also Swarovski's never feel 'cheap' in the hand - for that you'll have to grab a Zeiss SF ....... :smoke:

So they dropped the 8.5x for an 8x? It doesn't sound like much of a difference but after ten years of use I really have enjoyed the little extra oomph.

Maybe a 10x is in the offing. They do look comfy, with lots of room for fat fingers, lol.
