A 10x25 BCA was my only bin for about 20 years. I still enjoy it just as much as I used to even though it's been joined in recent years by a 10x42 NV and a 7X42 UVHD+. I did once compare it to a 10x25UV and there was a noticeable, but relatively small, difference. However, IMO size and form factor go in the Trinovid's favour. I have the original leather pouch for them which is small enough to fit into a coat pocket. They've been a faithful and reliable 'friend' for almost half of my life. Wouldn't change them for anything!Hello durobird,
That's for the well wishes. I've always loved these small classic pocket glasses from Leica. Truth be told, I would have all four(Trinovids & Ultravids) but then they would compete for my time, so in a way having just one ensures I'll get maximal use out of it! I must admit I do miss the 10 x 25 Trinnie for its extra reach over the 8x glass but it doesn't focus as near(about 5 metres) as either the Trinovid or Ultravid 8 x 20.
I think the great charm about these glasses is that you can take them anywhere and enjoy them and because they are so well built they will last more than a lifetime if properly cared for.
Anyway, I hope you get many years of service out of your little 8 x 20 BCA!
