Have you tried the new Swarovski 10x32 EL roofs?
They are around twice the price but I prefer the 10x magnification plus they are light c. 21.2 oz and have a good
field of view c. 360ft/1000yds.

But I do need to have another look at the "Nikon 8x32 SE CF" (which I presume are the same thing as "Nikon 8x32 Superior E").

I went to the Bird Fair (UK) recently and tried all the top
binoculars - mainly 10x32s. ALL of them had quite

But looking at the 8x32s after all the other top names, I felt that I (my eyes at least) simply *couldnt fault* the Nikons!! I could see no colour fringing,
my eyes were totally at rest.
I was like looking without binoculars except everything
was 8x closer.

But when I tried the 10x I really didnt like them!
[I was now short on time and possibly I should have spent more time fiddling with the dioptre settings etc.
But I dont wear glasses and I generally set the eyepiece dioptre almost exactly at nil.]
The Nikon 10x32 SE roofs are too heavy for a start (I do a lot of fairly extreme hill walking).

Obviously the downsides of the 8x32 SE would include not being waterproof, and close focus only down to 3 meters (Swarovskis 10x32 go down to 2m /ie 7ft).

I see that betterviewdesired.com has been raving about the 8x32 Superior E porros for ages. Maybe the guy is right!

P.S. How do you rate this website (excelsis.com)?
I am a newbie here. Have you posted many opinions yet?

>>>>>I've used and enjoyed this non-waterproof porro binocular more then any other that I've owned. Like many, I'm nagged by the Superior Es' lack of true waterproofing. But that goes away whenever I use this bino. I know that the Superior Es have the best optics around. I've tested them against many of the other high end binos, and the SEs top the others in overall optical quality. The brightness, contrast, depth of field, color rendition, sharpness, eye relief all are top notch. The ergonomics and light weight are also great. Even for astronomy, this is a good binocular. I've taken this bino all over, on more hikes and camping trips then I can count, and used it in many birding habitats and environments. I've never been disappointed. This binocular will do you for whatever you want, just be careful with the rain and submersion!
