Ooof I hope my review doesn't leave you thinking I'm a total dolt
Watching the storks today against blazing blue sky, kettling near the sun, I was really impressed with how they did with glare, and wasn't bothered by the chromatic aberration.
I'm not quite enough of a binocular geek to do a better comparison, as I do find value in just enjoying what I have and not obsessing over every detail. However I've been tempted many times to get a CL-B to compare, or to get a MHG 10x42 to compare to my ELSV...
No worries … if it doesn't work for me it will have to do with ER, ergonomics or colors and I would never think badly about anyone who recommended the little HG on this forum. It's really all very subjective. I also read Stephanie's review in that same thread from a couple years ago. She compared it directly to CL-b and it seemed the HG did very well against it from her point of view. Sure seems like a quality bino and I'm glad I got it for a decent price.
