    Anyone tried these Zeiss

    They have a fair price on them but there are nothing but good reviews from the US.

    It amazes me as to how many Aussies are lurking on this forum as members of the Secret Squirrel Society.

    Ace optics in Bath had a used pair recently,
    they looked bigger and heavier than the spotting scope I bought!

    If I had them they would only be used as a spotter type bino within fairly close proximity to the vehicle,I wouldnt contemplate long stalking with them.

    A stabilized binocular which is far more compact and cheaper is canon 18x50 is, but I prefer 15x50 IS.

    They're sure great, usual Zeiss quality and clarity, you can spot out of a moving vehicle even, but impractically heavy and bulky for out in the field around your neck, unless you have a ghillie or boy to carry them for you!
