It could explain all the rubber issues........I watched the above video with the subtitles on, so as not to disturb my partner who was on the phone. It was rather disconcerting that the subtitles changed the name to 'Anal Pure'. I wonder if that describes the typical purchaser?
Hello Globetrotter," light flare ring " on the outer area of FOV !!!!!
This is a no go for this binoculars, this issue remember me when i bought a very early sample of 8x42 SF, Huge green cast and muted view ( To my Eyes ) and crescent orange flare on the lower part of FOV, pictures posted on this forum.
At least that issue was visible close to the sun not looking everywhere like on new NL.
Now i have a cherry unit black armour 8x42 SF.....a keeper, just slight green cast and amazing flare, glare performance with nome of the faults found on my first sample.
New model new problems...........for me better to wait but i will go on September to check one sample myself.
Congrats. Check if the two little rubber inserts are in the white box. You want to get rid of the lens covers. Pretty goofy in the field Imo.I bought the Swarovski NL Pure 8x42 yesterday. It replaces a Bushnell Legend M 8x42. My, the Swaros are in another universe! The ergonomics are perfect for my hands. The field of view is huge, and the clarity is stunning. I have been out twice with it so far and I love it!
I look forward to reading other people's impressions.

Still don't get it.It might be. It says to phone Swarovski customer service, instead of returning the binoculars to the store.
Think this is spot on.In the U.S., on-line shopping will continue to displace brick and mortar retailers. In the U.S., one in four retail transactions are internet based, yet almost 2 in three Americans live in metro areas of plus 1 million residents representing over 200 million of our 330 million people meaning they're not necessarily in Kodiak, Alaska with no other shopping choices. Americans are moving away from brick and mortar shops and towards internet based one-day-delivery retail shopping. This rapidly shifting retail model can and should calibrate how manufacturers deal with issues like the Swarovski Stop Sign.
Stop sign or not, had my Midway USA bought NL Pure come in defective, Midway USA would be swapping it out, Swaro would not be in that picture.
The shift towards internet retailing is strongest among earners most likely to drop $3K for a pair of NL Pure. Online shopping intent for non-essential categories is highest among high income earners. Alpha binoculars are the definition of non-essential, and they are purchased by high income earners. 75% of consumers have tried new shopping behaviors, and 80% plan to continue. Americans are also switching to low-touch shopping methods such as the internet and plan to continue after the Covid crisis. Consumers who make over $100,000 a year tend to be more able to stay at home during the pandemic crisis, allowing them to shop more online. This group is slightly less price sensitive than other cohorts due to greater job stability.
Consumers use of online channels before and after Covid:
