Zeiss SFL 8x40 vs Trinovid 8x42 HD (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Yesterday I got the opportunity to compare these models.
First of all I was surprised that SFL actually is larger size than Trinovid.
Short about the optics. As known before SFL has a whiter image, and it feels brighter. Trinovid has a warmer image reminding of the image of Vortex 6x32 HD
SFL is sharper and has wider FOV. Both have fully sufficient eye relief for my eyeglasses use.
Both provide enough large sweet spot for me.
My choice would be SFL, but I will go for 8x30 if I find ER being sufficient.
