Re: Swaro -- EL vs SLC
Not everybody will see the same results so take what I say with a grain of salt.
I own a pair of El's. I have used SLC's extensivly. I also have access to several SCL models. My eyes can tell the difference with minimal comparison. The EL's are noticably brighter to me. Whether or not there is any resolution differences or not, I am not sure. But they are much brighter objective for objective. It doesnt hurt that they are much lighter either.
Are they worth the extra coin? Only you can answer that. If $$ isnt an issue, then my opinion is they are worth it. If it is the difference between making your mortgage or not, then maybe and maybe not.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
