Leica Trinovid 10x42 BA
Very well made with extremely good coatings.
Water proof for 5 meters.
Nitrogen filled for fog elimination.
Armor that you could'n scratch or destroy, I think.
Very high contrast.
The exit pupil is surrounded by absolutely darkness.
30 years warranty but a very high price.
It is only a 7 because I had some Problems with
It has a (we german say) pillow effect at the edge
of the giant FOV.
I looked inside the Objektiv Lenses an saw a
liquid (oil or so) inside at the Tube.
I see false colour . Not like a short fokal refraktor
perhaps a collimation problem.
Perhaps if you are not exactly on the optical axis
with your eyes this colour appears.
(left eye: left red, right blue. right eye: left blue and
right red. Or reversed, I don't remember.)
On one ofr the inner fokussing lenses I found
metal dust and dirt.
I took it to the dealer I buyed it and he send it
back to Leica.
I'm still waiting to hear from them (2 weeks)
Maybe I buyed a (we german say) monday item.

Greetings from Germany

Can't go wrong with these amazingly bright and clear binoculars. Would like to compare edge clarity with the Nikon Venturer LX.

I bought a pair of 8x42BN because the 10x50s were a bit much for long hikes, even though I am huge.Excellent performance,very bright,exquisite color rendition,superior contrast.Not as sharp as my Leica 10x50s but what do you expect?This is why a 9 and not a 10.As far as 42s go...these are a 10.Superior for birding/wildlife use and compact astronomy use.I grab these first now.If its on the edge of seeing it,I grab the 10x50s!Fabulous binoculars.Worth the extra.
