New Product Introduction Today From Swarovski ? (1 Viewer)

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

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

Chosun :gh:

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.
