Zen Ray optics?

Has anyone used Zen Ray optics, and if so what are your thoughts? How do they compare to the high end optics? Just wondering, and hearing quite a bit about them.

    I have the ed3 binos and they are incredible for the price. Clear and bright! The same as Swaro binos...no but for nearly 2000 dollars less they are great! Hunted hard with them for 3 years now and I have zero complaints

    That is good to hear. I am looking for a new pair and am not one that can fork over the premium price. Anyone else out there?

    Have a pair of ED2 8x43, pretty darn good for the price. Much better than my older Nikon Monarchs and various Steiners. I Bought a Zeiss Victory HT and difference to my eyes wasn't as much as you would expect. Zeiss is better overall but not by a large margin. My only complaint is the Obj lens covers keep falling off...

    I have a pair of ED 2, 8X binos. I am very pleased with them and they are clear and bright. Way better than I thought, even given their reputation. I have a pair of Zeiss Conquest 10X30's and the Zen Ray is better.
