    Swarovski Habicht Binoculars

    Don't see a lot of mention about these traditional styled binoculars and just wonder why. At 700 for a 7x42 they seem to be excellent value, especially compared to the standard top brands. This style of binocular is lot cheaper make compared straight tubed bins.

    I've got these in the green ribbed finish, bought in the late '80's. They are bulkier, but much the same weight as the roof prism type. Very clear too, with a better binocular separation allegedly.
    Having got a duff left hand from a stalking accident, these are much easier to grip particularly with gloves on.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    I have the Habicht SLs. I don't know what SL stands for, but I think they're the same mechanically and optically but with a smooth rubber casing. They're excellent and I paid 300 for them on eBay. I don't need anything else, frankly.

    My Habicht 7x42 SL's are still serving me well even in the face improved glass/coatings/mechanicals etc.
    If memory serves me they were around 600 when first became available and came with a 25(30?)yr warranty.
    If needed swarovski still replace the rainguard/objective covers and will service as necessary - had mine done a couple of years ago and came back as new (not that I had abused them) for nowt charge.
