    Have you seen this: http://www.holgermerlitz.de/swaro7x42.html

    I thought this model had been discontinued?

    I know an FC Ranger who uses those, he knows his stuff and if he wanted a different model then he would get them so that must be some sort of recomendation. JC

    I have the 8x30 Habichts and love them. I have used the 8.5x42 EL's and they give you about an extra 5 minutes in the morning and evening on dull days. But you can use the EL's on moonlit nights too! I do not think they are worth the extra 1000 pounds though.

    Minox HG or Bushnell Elite would be on the list now, in 8.5x43 or similar.
