    Swarovski 10x42 EL views welcomed

    All,
    ​I have the opportunity to buy a set of second hand Swarovski 10x42EL binoculars. Before I part with my hard earned money I would welcome your honest views both good & bad, so I can make a sound decision.
    Thanks in advance,
    243 Stalker.

    i have looked through the 10x42 and though veryy clear i find they show too much shake if that makes sense, i much prefer the 8.5x42

    i use a set of 10x42 EL binos, i wouldn't swap them for any thing. have used leica but the swarovski is much better. i have the same issue as the scudd but have lent to use my sticks to steady them. only bad point in the fog i get a full white out (don't know if its the glass or 10x)

    Great bit of kit! I bought a pair of 10x42 EL on eBay 18 months ago that I only discovered were over 10 years old when I came to sell them recently... I should probably have asked myself, but I sold them for the same price last month when I upgraded to 10x42 EL-R, so matters not a jot when you get 0% depreciation.

    If you can, email Jo at Swarovski with the serial number, and get some detail for your own piece of mind:
    info-uk@swarovskioptik.co.uk

    In summary: Bombproof binos with solid residuals that will outlast most of us

    Cheers

    If the price is right then buy them, it's one purchase you will never regret.

    Bought mine new in 2003 for £850, sold them in 2012 for £850. As you can see they'd been about a bit:






    I was actually a bit choked up when the new owner forced my clenched fingers off of them to take them away. Had to go to help fund my 10x42 EL rangers. Haven't been disapointed with those either, but if i suddenly had £850 in my back burner I'd be looking up the bloke that has My old EL's and having them back.

    Can you see a pattern here?
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    Nothing wrong with a pattern, Digger... See post #4
