Hi Greg - that's an excellent review. I did have a set of these for a while and agree with pretty much everything you found. I did sell them on, but probably should have kept them (the usual case of trying to find optical nirvana!). They really are superb binoculars. There is a review on Cloudynights which rates them higher (?) than the Fujinon 10x70s.

I'm guessing this is the thread on CloudyNights you are referring to Andrew? <http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthrea...b/7/o/all/vc/1>. Greg, you've written a very nice review of an excellent binocular. Thank you sir.

Richard - yep - that's the CN review!

Greg - I also like your point about the conventional wisdom of matching exit pupils. There just is something so easy about using a Bino with a 7mm exit pupil.

Cheers

Andrew
