Pure 14x52
« on: June 13, 2024, 05:50:18 PM »
Ok…who ordered a pair today…admit it!   :chuckle:

I have mixed emotions….I’ve been packing a pair of 15x’s for 16 years.   All good things come to an end.  Glad I held off on the 12x’s

Oh yeah, if you need a good deal on a pair of 15x56 (newest model) for a killer deal, let me know.  :chuckle:

I will be for sure, the 12’s are night and day better than any other

I was really hoping they would have done a 12x52 NL pure. I need to compare the 10x52 and the 12x42 and see which one fits the bill.

The 10x52 is supposed to nearly be an 11 power... if so that could be a nice sweet spot

I was really hoping for a 12x52.  That would have rounded out my Swaro collection.  But I guess it'll have to be the 14x, but sure makes having the SLC 15x56 seem redundant.

I'd bet the 10x52's will not only have a brighter and cleaner image but they'd also be easier on your eyes to view through for extended periods.  Other then the size being a little bigger/heavier with these new 10x52's I'd be shocked if they don't provide the best image of any set of binos we've seen to date, particularly, in low light conditions.

Extra magnification is great but unless the objective grows with it the image is generally not as crisp and clean as well as it's more tiring to the eyes.
 
I've held on to my 8.5x42 EL's for all the reasons mentioned above and for a smaller set of binos I probably will continue to but these new 10x52 NL's could very well be my next bino purchase.  I'm a little surprised Swaro isn't doing a 12x52 NL but I'd imagine they will at some point.

I do love my EL 10x50.  They really are my go-to bin for almost everything.  I have no doubt the NL 10x52 will surpass it in every way.

That's what I'm waiting for!  Leica geovids until then.
