        Comments about Swarovski 8.5x42mm EL SwaroVision Binoculars:

        I lost two pairs of Leica binoculars during a trip. They were 8x32 and 10x40 Trinovids. After weeks of research and hands on comparisons, I thought the 8.5x42 was a great compromise as replacement for the lost twins.
        The Swarovski are amazing. It had 3D rendering of scenes superior to current line Leica and a lot better than my old Trinovids. The close focusing distance of about 4 yards allow me to focus on my HDTV and see the individual pixels. Something you cannot do with the naked eye.
        Focusing at any distance was fast and precise.

        For eye glass wearers, the 20mm of eye relief works for bifocals as well. About the only thing missing is a built in tripod feature.

        Comments about Swarovski 8.5x42mm EL SwaroVision Binoculars:

        I am an avid bowhunter (30-40 days per fall), and casual gun hunter from Wisconsin. I have owned a pair of Swarovski El 10x42 for about five years, and love them. Thought I would buy the 8.5x42 as a second pair, and to see for myself the difference in their new Swarovision glass.I've had them out on a turkey hunt twice, and have viewed several dusk settings to compare with my other Swarovski's. I cant see a big difference between the two. I notice some difference but it is very slight, in my opinion, which certainly is not professional or scientific. Take it for what its worth.Bottom line; I would recoomend ANY Swarovski El binos. If you want to save yourself [$], buy the original El's. You wont be dissapointed in either pair, they are awesome.It will be the last pair of binos you will ever need to buy.As a reference, I own a Zeiss spotting scope and a pair of Leica binos (heavy).If I am allowed to edit this post in a few months, after I've had more time to use them, I will do so.
