    Cons: Heavy for its class. Has some filed curvature starting from 75% of FOV, which limits performance at infinity focus. Usable eye relief smaller then specified, closer to 15mm; more evident if used with glasses at night.

    Pros: Great optical quality. Extremely bright. Great control over ghost images and flares. Very good control of chromatic aberrations. Minimal coma and astigmatism. Extremely solid construction.

    Summary: A great bino, which only fails in scope for portability becuse it weigths more than some 8x42s. Optically very good, control of color aberrations and ghosting is at alpha level. Color rendition is extremely neutral. Trasmission is exceptional: perceived brightness better than many 8x42s roofs in daylight, only slightly behind at dusk. A tad behind alphas when it comes to contrast, good but not exceptional; resolution however is excellent. Blurrines appears at 75% of FOV and it's due mostly to field curvature: refocusing for border sharpness results in an image which almost as sharp and contrasty as the center sweet spot. Minimal coma and astigmatism. This results in very good depth of field when focused at usual birdwatching range (20 to 50 meters). The best value for money in 8x32 class, second only to Nikon (both 8x32 SE and EDG). The Swarovski sports better contrast but much worse chromatic aberration. The

    Cons: Weight, physical size

    Pros: Optical quality, balance, flare resistance.

    Summary: Best 8x32 binocular money can buy for under $1000. I have compared it to my Leica 8x32 and Nikon 8x32 SE and the Leupold wins by a margin in both cases. Outstanding control of flare and reflections and super bright for a 32mm roof...AAA+++

    Cons: Shallow focus

    Pros: Resolution, contrast, field flatness, feel in the hand and balance. High eye "comfort".

    Summary: In Allbino's ranking these are just above the Nikon 8x32 SE. On a purely optical measure, they are not as good as my SE, but then, what is? But they are close. Very good for a roof prism bino.
