Given to Fly
Nikon has got a great product, at a great price point too. I really wouldn't be waiting. Get it. Enjoy it ...... for many years.I think the MHG will still be better than the new M7. I guess that the update to the M7 is a great thing, especially the rubber armor.
I tested the MHG again and think that I will keep it. It’s an awesome glass and i can easily afford it. It’s more my head telling me that i shouldn’t spend the money when I already got a glass that’s fine.
Do you guys think I should wait some time for an updated version of the MHG? Sadly Nikon won’t tell us anything about their plans.
Thank you at this point for all your kind words and advises. It’s great to have a community willing to help!
My gut feel is that they won't touch it. If they did, it would shoot up to at least an SLC /HT type price point. That would also mean no upgraded EDG. I'm not certain that binoculars (sport optics) are Nikon's main focus (lol - I can't help myself ! 😄). They have enough to do with getting the Z mount camera lens range fleshed out, and introducing new halo level bodies.
I'm not even sure that Nikon intends on ever upgrading the EDG to compete with the Swaro NL anyway ...... people have died waiting for things in the optics /imaging world - like a Canon 7D Mark III, or a Nikon 600mm f5.6 lens, etc.
Don't overthink it - life is short - go out and look at stuff 👍
