I had the Swarovision 8x32 and my Swaro 8x25 CL-P out this morning comparing them. Of course the bigger Swarovision is a little more comfortable to use with easier eye placement and a slightly larger FOV. In day light you notice no difference in brightness. The glare control is about the same on both or very good. The view is VERY similar between the two. The smaller FOV of the CL-P wasn't bothering me and then I found out why. The FOV is sharp to the EDGE like the Swarovision. Are these CL-P's using Swarovision technology? There is a 100% sweetspot! Amazing. I know the Swaro 8x30 CL-C doesn't have the sharp edge technology. The CA control on both is very good and really about the same even though the 8x32 has ED glass. ER is amazing on the CL-P at 17mm for a compact and there is no problem with smudging the eyepieces. I notice very little blackouts with it and of course none with the bigger 8x32. The eyecups on the CL-P are comfortably large although not quite as comfortable as the bigger eyecups on the bigger glass. It hangs flat against your chest. This is easily the best compact I have seen and it could be your main birding binocular. Folded it is VERY small and compact. Amazing little binocular.If there is something defective like their is with the Nikon M7 I bought. There is nothing wrong with returning it. You would return it too. Try one.
