Thanks for the replies guys! I currently have the ZRS HD's in 10x42 and they are by far the best binos I have ever had. I want to upgrade this season and pass the ZRS on the wife/son. I always wanted to own alpha binos, but if I went with the Zens I would have money left over for a new Eberlestock pack, some more Mossy Oak Brush clothing
, and maybe a new pair of boots!! If the difference is negligable I will go with the Zens. BTW, I compared my ZRS HD's side by side with a buddy's Swaro EL's in low light and did not see a $2,250 difference. I noticed the Swaros had better egde to edge clarity and maybe a bit better resolution, but nothing that would cause someone to miss seeing an animal.
