Looking to replace the 7x42 SLC's that I recently sold, was thinking of the new 8x42 SLC HD's but most people here seem to swear by the EL's. SLC's are supposed to be a bit brighter as they don't have the field flattener lenses but the EL's seem to get the vote on image quality but are they worth the extra 250, so if anyone has experience with both I would be interested to hear their thoughts.
