Zeiss Classic 8x56
I've had my 8X56 Zeiss for about 20 years (mine are not multicoated), and have not seen many others to compare with them in large roof prism types. My eyes are very sensitive to binocular collimation error and I quickly get a severe headache when using binocs that are not "right on," but generally find that either Leitz or Zeiss are a pleasure to use and easy on the eyes. Edge sharpness falls off a bit at the extreme edge, but appears to be better than other big roof types, contrast is great, slight color under some conditions - but these aren't apo's after all. Even though they are roof prism types, they are still rather big and heavy, so they don't see as much action as my little ones - but when light levels are low, they're truly wonderful.

Absolutely fantastic for low light conditions. Excellent color contrast. Great for mariners, birdwatchers, astronomy etc.
