Re: Zeiss

Do you see that much difference between the Meopta's and the upper end Leica's.................enough to make the $1500 difference? Can you really see the difference

Re: Zeiss

I CANNOT, but everyone's perception of images is not the same. That is the frustrating part of evaluating optics. I do a lot of long range glassing and when you are looking at something a mile or more away it is going to be tiny..... so it better be sharp!

Re: Zeiss

It would be worth it for you in the long run to visit a retailer and physically put hands and eyes on them to find out what you like and if the difference in glass quality is worth the extra investment.
I have spent countless hours glassing with a lot of the high end glass options. Yeah, if you really look for the difference you can see one, but it's not much
But I don't think think it warrants spending another $1500 on Leica for the next higher level in glass quality if a $1k pair will do a great job for years to come.

Re: Zeiss

Cabela's has the old model(non HD) 10x40's on sale for $699. That is such a good deal I almost.....nope, forget it. Some of their stores carry the big three for comparison, although I do not see how you could do much of an evaluation indoors.
