Myself and a few friends are looking for new binos, so off we went to the Midland and raided every stand with optics on show, after assessing them for clarity, edge definition,light transmission from 50 yards to 5000, looking though bright light into shade etc, we sat down over a pint to discuss our findings.
We could only agree on three things.
1 Swarovski were the best
2 Nikon had a pair of 10 x 42sp that were exceptionable at a price of £241.00 (strange because
most of us did not rate the Monach Range)
3 The difference in quality between the Nikons and the 10 x 42 Swarovski's was in no way worth the extra £1500.00
I'd like to hear other Members thoughts
