Adhoc, I will compare the two as soon as I can and I will let you know what I think. What I can say now is that the Leica experience is much nicer. Not only because of the qualities one would expect from a Leica but also because of the higher magnification. I agree wholeheartedly with Eitan when he says things often seemed too small through the Leupold/Kowa. I think a 7x strikes a good balance between DOF and magnification.Jafritten, sorry I have not been clear and specific enough. What I would most like to know about the Leica Uv. 7x42 is what is copied in your post #37 and answered by you in it! The Uv. 7x42, then, does give (you) that experience. Thank you.
What I would most like to know from a comparison of it with the Kowa YF 6x30 is whether the Uv. 7x42 is close to it in that experience.
Something else crossed my mind: The stereoscopic effect of the porro design may add to what you like about the Kowa. From what I can recall the effect is not markedly stronger compared to the Leica but it should be there. So, maybe what you'd really like is a 7x porro?
