Re: opinions needed
This is my second hunting season with my Minox 15X58 binos, and I will tell you it is a pleasure!!! I really like mine. My hunting buddy has the SLC 7X42 and they are very good, but no match for the 15X Minox. Yes you have TWICE the power but they also cost TWICE as much!! The Lens coatings are different and the focusing is different, but both are world class binos. I can see everything he can see at 500 yds but he can not see much of anything I can see at 1000 yds. The power differences is key. I do remember reading an article of testing somewhere stating the Minox 15X58 was 98% as clear as the 15XSwarvos.That's saying alot considering the cost. I have never looked through the 15X Swarvos, and may be surprised at the 2% difference. Swarvos and Leicas are hard to beat and pay for. Bill Maylor..
