New time birder, just into the hobby with my wife. I bought her a pair of Monarch M7s and since then, we’ve both gotten into this. Recently bought the EL8.5x42 after seeing so many glowing reviews and the image is incredible. I am curious on the SFL 8x40 for smaller size and faster focus for birding (the throw on the Swaros is long, really my only complaint with them but also a smaller bin could be nice if I am not giving up much else). I also wear glasses. What would you do for general birding + nature bins? I got the swaros new from an AD for $2100 all in, and the SFLs are $1800 I believe. Thanks in advance!
