My 7x42 SLC's went back to Swarovski last week as they were fogging up on the inside of one of the objective lenses. They are now 15 years old.
I asked Swarovski if there was any possibility of borrowing a demo pair as it is a busy time for me just now and didn't want to start scrounging from mates or buying another pair.
'Oh, no problem sir', says Swarovski, 'they will be out to you by return post'.
Well, true to their word a loan pair arrived today. A pair of HD 10x42 SLC's.
They couldn't just lend me a scabby old pair to make do with, and leave it at that. Oh no...
I can see this loan costing me a lot of money.
Very light weight and incredible clarity. I am out morning and evening over the next 3 days so I am keen to see just how they perform in varying light. Looking across the fields outside the house this evening was very impressive.
Thanks a lot Swarovski...
In all seriousness, another example of fantastic service.
