Hey Together. I have a Victory SF 8x42 in Grey built in 2015. I read alot in the Internet that this first Version in Grey have problems with the Rubber ( mine to, comes loosen) and with the Focus Knob. So i send it to Zeiss for Service.
But i also read in the internet sometimes that people say that the Colour rendition from the black Version is different. Improved Coatings?
So my grey Version i can see by some lights this greenish tint. My Swarovski NL Pure is here more cool. My Question, is the Black Version from the Victory SF same Coatet than the first grey Version? Or is here a Different in Colour Reprotuction between this both?
Have anyone Compared Grey VS Black and can tell something about?

Thanks

Peter
