Congratulations @HenChamp for your new addition. They truly are wonderful binoculars. Unfortunately, for me, it took more than a year to realize how wonderful they are because I have seen unavoidable blackouts. Finally, I found it was the forehead rest that gave me that problem. Now I use it with FHR folded down.
@Elpha8888 Is NL 12x42 that good? Sometimes I miss extra magnification when I use NL 8x42 and am thinking to get an NL 10x42 or 12x42. Is it possible to use them handheld? Because I usually don't like to use binoculars tripod mounted. Other option I was thinking is getting a Noctivid 10x42. However, reluctant to get one because it might not be very stable in hand as well as quite a bit of CA mentioned by others. If it is that good compared to the NL 8x42, I might want to buy one later addition to the NL 8x42. Because I don’t want to miss the FOV of NL.
