Just wanted to say I've just bought a Schmidt 8x56 KLassik scope and a new pair of minox 10 x 42 binoculars . I'm so chuffed with both . My mentor uses all Swarovski . On his .308 ( we both use this cal) he has6x42 Swarovski which is great but I much prefer my Schmidt 8x56 I like the reticle and I think it's better built . It's certainly easier to sight in . I also prefer the wider field of view I seem to get with my Schmidt . My mentor uses Swarovski binoculars his are 8 mag els . Granted my minox arnt quite as good but I'm still really pleased . You can see very well at night with them and in the morning . The only thing I've found to be better on the swaros is that the relief is focus is a little more refined .
In all I'm we'll chuffed with my new optics and I can't wait to get out and use them in the field !
