12mm Nagler T4 Vs. meade 14mm UWA series 4000

How about a shootout between a 12mm Nagler Type 4 and a Meade 14mm series 4000 UWA?, or has anybody compared the two in say a 12" F/5 reflector like mine???...I would like to know because i have the chance to TRADE my Meade series 4000 UWA with a 12mm Nagler type 4.
Should I go for the trade?...or should i just keep my 14mm meade series 4000 UWA???

Didnt you sell a previous 14UWA only to get one again The 14UWA is a sweet eyepiece and one I wouldnt part with {big bugger though} plus you have a good power spread with the 14UWA slotted in your eyepiece kit

Yes, this is my second 14mm UWA, however, I like to experiment with as many eyepieves as possible!!! I am glad that I read what Geoff and you both said. I prefer sharpness over eye relief and I will more then likely just keep the 14mm UWA now ...Geoff, is the view "soft" towards the edges in the 12mm Nagler?...please explain what you see in detail!!!!

Just that the one 12nagt4 I have looked through isnt the sharpest eyepiece out there on axis, when compared to others. We got sharper focus through a 22panoptic barlowed and the pentax XL.
Its subtle, but noticeably less sharp across the field than others.

The the 22 Balowed is really really nice.
Both 12 & 14 are very good Ep's in a high end Apo I don't see any differance in sharpness. But in a F5 the 14 seems to work a tad better.

Mark bettween what you buy and sell and comment on here and CN I would say Buy all that you can try them them sell what you don't like.
