From what i am seeing on birding forums on the new HDs is that they are near equal to the older FLs. I may be a guinne pig and pick these up. Im contemplating between these in 10X42, or mayble some swarovski cl in 8x30
The cabelas euro hd was another option i was looking at as well. I will most likly go with the new conquests, but just measuing all my options. Looking for glass in the 1000-1200 range, i would like to get alpha glass if at all possible.
You got some advanced time with them? I'm jealous. They sound pretty good.
Maybe we should talk. I have a pair of the latest iteration Swaro 10X42 SLC neus (swaroclean, swarodur, the works). they are a fine binocular in perfect shape. Maybe we could work out something around your price range. That way I could start towards my new dream bin : The SLC HD (that is some WOW glass too). Send me a PM.
