Merry Cristmas to All!!
My Mum, God bless her, wants to buy me a pair of binoculars for Christmas.
Being concerned for her I said I really liked the Meopta 8x42, at about £650. Mum just looked at me shrewdly.
I tried to say that I couldn't see a difference between the Meostar & EL 42mm models I tried at a fair earlier this year. But she brushed that answer aside
"What do you really WANT?" she asked. Without missing a beat I said Swarovski. She didn't even blink when I said they were £1,600!!
ANYWAY, the reason for my thread is I am a bit non-plussed over which ones to go for!
Please don't begrudge the question (You should be so lucky etc), I blame me Mum!!
Choosing 42mm left me looking at the EL Swarovision 8.5x42 or the EL 8x42
At this much money I wanted to try them in a shop but I live in Hertfordshire, and Macleods are a long, long way (only shop I found that have them actually in stock, and not just online).
So, learned ST members what'da think?
