    Try before you buy!!

    I have looked through both, and there was an improvement to my eyes with the new version. However, the new ones seemed to fit me better, which is definately a factor, although it is difficult to describe what I mean. When you are spending that kind of cash you really, really need to try them.

    The old model are excellent.

    I have a pair of 'old' 8.5x42's and a French client had a pair of the new Swarovision ones. There was a difference, but to me it was marginal - if I hadn't known which was which beforehand I'd have been hard pressed to tell.

    That's a fact. Even my 22 year old Swaro Habicht SL 8x56 binos will fetch more than I paid for them, going by what they regularly fetch on eBlag.
