Well I just got my 10x42's in the mail this am. I haven't much of a chance to use them yet, but from what little I have used them I am very impressed with the Optical Clarity and Quality. I was using a pair of Swaro Slc 10x50's a couple of weeks ago and why I don't have them with me to compare the two, it seems to me that they are very close in clarity with a slight edge to the Swaro, but they were also a 50mm objective so the light gathering was substancially better obviously than the Leupy 42mm's. Overall I am very impressed and very happy with the purchase, ie the Value given the Price. Hope you all are satisfied as much as myself.

Make sure they are the HD most of the ones I've seen for sale at $799 are the older model they are good also just not HD from my research the older models are index matched lenses similar to the glass on VXII scopes and higher models. HD is the new coatings they are using I think dont quote me on that though. The people I hunt with use them and they are good.
