Cons: Heavier. Focus needs lube over time.

Pros: Wide field of view - great ergonomics - feel light - look good - excellent Zeiss build quality - great in low light - beautiful leather case

Summary: These bins are fantastic. Zeiss build quality is second to none. I've had these bins for 10 years of intense use and they are like new. Highly recommended.

Cons: Not fully waterproof

Pros: Everything else.

Summary: Great long barrels with exceptional stability. The absolute best (most easy and pleasing) view I have experienced in any of my optics collection. Control of fare is incredible. Great color and lightweight package. I upgraded to the newer condura case as it offers better protection from the leather one, I cannot speak enough about how GOOD this optic has been to me over the years. This is my second one, I had one many years ago and sold it as I needed the money.....I regretted it ever since, so I replaced it with a new one I found several years ago...brilliant glass..and more detail to be seen from this 7x, than all my 8x collection.

Cons: Rubber eye cups outdated by todays standards

Pros: Image, solid build, steady view, flare resistance

Summary: Overall, this is the best birding binocular I have had the pleasure to hold and use. Incredible resolution and detail pick up. I have a new Zeiss FL and Leica and Swarovski variants , so I am no stranger to image quality. The Zeiss TOPS many of these newer binoculars in the area of image clarity and pure viewing pleasure. If Zeiss continued with this design, just added newer eye cups and fully waterproof, I would buy four of them, one for my wife, one each for my kids and one for me...these optics are THAT good. Exceptional binoculars and Highly recommended above all other glasses for general/birding/nature viewing.. 5 STARS

Cons: None come to mind.

Pros: FOV, clarity, sharpness, contrast, balance in the hand, comfort for the eyes.

Summary: Mine are phase coated (*P). Some one once said that it is like every bird is illuminated like there is a small bulb inside it. Yes. One of the flawless glasses.
