@ bockos: would be fun to know your experience when trying a 7x compared to 8x and higher. You might be in for another surprise (steadiness, depth of view)!
It is possible..as an alternative to Swarovski NL8x42 ... Come to think of it, a person is born with two normal eyes ... without any magnification.10x ... 15x ... No! Why are we so organized? Apparently 7x..and 8x..are closer to our vision. Just as we were born into this world ... Yes Surprise. And also this: no matter how much I move .. our vision is always stable and wide and great ..
