In addition to clarity as a measure of an optic, there are other considerations. The people who advised me on the Swaro binoculars also mentioned "color" as being important. Those people (GG, Uncle B, Michele and ????) were very right. At a range of 2300 yards I picked up a cow elk by color alone. With the binoculars, I could not tell if it was shaped like a log or a rock or a bush but I could tell it was elk color. Then with the Nightforce set at 32 X 56mm, I could tell not only that it was an elk but for 100% sure it was a cow.
Something to think about.
