When the Opticron Traveler ED 8x32 Binoculars first came out, the only thing that stopped me was I could not decide on these or the Opticron Verano HD 8x32 which had been discontinued I believe to be replaced by the Traveler ED 8x32 in Opticron’s top 8x32 lineup. After reading Frank D. review of the Verano just intrigued me more because I once owned the Opticron Countryman HD 8x32. Frank also reviewed the little 8x32 Countryman which I really liked and regret selling. Frank reviewed both the Countryman and Verano giving both high marks, with differing mainly in how he liked the ocular lens more in one than the other due to his facial characteristics. From my reading the countryman HD 8x32 came first, then the Verano HD 8x32 with the Opticron Traveler ED 8x32 last/current. Has any one actually used both the Verano HD 8x32 and the Traveler ED 8x32 ? If so optically which one provided the most relaxing/sharpest view ?
