I just went through this process. Ended up buying S/H from MacLeods of Tain. £795 for class 3 ELs 8.5 x 42. From Swarovski (they specify the class not the shop) with 10 years warranty and the only reason they were class three was tiny rub marks on the bridge. My first top glass. No complaints and good customer service.
Thanks for that help guys I seem to have missed them. I am just starting out and would like a good quality pair. I will keep my eyes peeled for another pair. At least I now have an idea of the price ranges if I want good optics thanks again.
Deffo worth the money, whether brand new or pre-owned [as their post sales warranty is pretty darn good to say the least]...I bought myself a pair of new EL10x42's [with extra Swarovision!!] some three or fours ago and don't regret a single penny
