I have also dropped GA on a wooden floor but not from 2m high. That is the only time I dropped binoculars and no other experience I have. However, I saw a few videos on YouTube, about dropping and torturing Vortex, GPO, and Conquest HD binoculars. They worked well even after getting pretty much of torturing. Now it is time to compare Swarovski models in the same way 🤣🤣My gut feeling says that the Habicht GA will survive a drop better than the SLC, EL and NL.
Habicht GA > SLC > EL > NL
This is just a non scientific opinion, based on the fact that i dropped my Habicht GA on a wooden floor once without damage But i could be completely wrong.
It would be an interesting fact finding experiment to drop the above mentioned binoculars from let’s say 2m on a wooden floor 10 times to see how they respond to that. Maybe somebody did this test already?
