    Cons: Bulk and weight, helps with keeping a stable grip though. Tripod exit is offset and requires a pecial accessory; unpractical. Rubber objective caps are loose.

    Pros: Optically superb, sharp to 80% of the frame, the remaining blur is mostly field curvature. Chromatic aberration absent in the center, minimal on the edge; not dependant on eye position. Nice resistance to flare/spikes (from light sources at night). Contrast is a tad lower than recent roof prism 8x56 alphas from Swaro and Zeiss, color rendition however is more natural. Sensational transmission. I sold mine three years ago because I didn\'t use it much: a mistake, this is the peak of classic Porro design.

    Summary: The best Porro ever made. Get one while you can.

    Cons: I have a magnesium version from 2008 which is lighter, but the binoculars are large & heavy, however, If you want quality & large prisms, which this bino has both, you must pay the price for what it can do with light & color.

    Pros: Color is warm & alive. I watch wildlife on the organic mango farm where I live in a Florida Island, including birds, 15 cats, a hawk that follows me around, & beautiful mangos & plants growing in paradise! Color is so good that you feel like reaching out & touching it! Clarity & light is superb. Combined with a cutting edge sharpness of image & you have a phenomenal instrument that delights the eyes & fills your soul with inspirational discovery & love for nature! There are so few of this Docter porro prism binoculars in the world, how fortunate I have one of them. I can even see into dark spaces with these lenses, during early evening!! I can even use my eyeglasses with this bino. Superb!!!!

    Summary: Find one of these masterpieces in Docter 8x56 B G/A, hold on to it. It is the Mona Lisa of all binoculars!

    Cons: Large and somewhat bulky however they are lighter then they appear. No case supplied.

    Pros: Wonderful clarity and brightness, the best I've ever seen and at a price too good to be true. I got them for stand hunting so size is not a factor.

    Summary: Several times, at dusk, I missed seeing deer that were only about 100 yds away until I looked thru the Docters. I was amazed at the difference they made. I have let several friends look thru them and they were also struck by the clarity. One friend commented that they looked like much more than 8x magnification. I have been more then pleased with these glasses. If you're looking for something for stand hunting that will enable you to see details in dim light, you won't do any better at any price.

    Cons: Expensive accessory, big dimensions and weight

    Pros: Very bright, nice clear image even at the edge, high resolution, very low CA, very good depth of field, plastic image 3D effect, very good ergonomics, good edge sharpness,

    Summary: Twilight performance is one of best on market, first class optics at the price of second class. Very good piece of glass. At daylight is possible to see transmission difference compared Docter Nobilem to SW EL 8,5x42 SV, green color realy shines in Nobilem, Very good binoculars inside dark woods, and at twiligt to night observation.

    Cons: Big and bulky. Because of this I rarely take them into the field when hiking.

    Pros: The image is rivals that of my Swarovision 10x50. These are the only binoculars I use when on the coast (of the NW US).

    Summary: A most satisfying binocular!

    Cons: Accessory expensive, maybe the objective caps but it's a large improvement when the connections cap/tube is more inside, the very sharp image to 75-80% makes the edge more unsharp than it really is, little underrated (too unknow? ) bino.

    Pros: Unbelieveable sharp , bright and white image. Chromatic aberration low. Large bino but easy to handle and fits perfect. Overall quality. Looks! Take a look at the test on this site. Don't need to say more about the 8 x 56 Nobilem.

    Summary: The Docter 8 x 56 Nobilem too unknow? The Docter is not cheap but probably one of the best in its price range. Twilight/night, somebody is switching on the light :).

    Cons: 1. Diopter adjusment moves too easily, i have made a click-stop on it myself. 2. Big and heavy binocular. 3. Cannot get the tripodadapter, mounting placed at one side. 4. Unsharp toward edges of visible field (curvature of field?)

    Pros: 1. The sharpest binocular i have ever seen trough. (resolution) 2. The clearest binocular i have ever seen trough. (contrast, colortrueness) 3. No noticable distortion. (unlike some others...) 4. Better than naked eye in the dark.

    Summary: Mine is a CARL ZEISS (Jena) NOBILEM 8X56, not the later Docter, but it should be the same thing. Much better optically, and better mechanically, than the ordinary Carl Zeiss Jena´s i have seen. Better optically than previous generation Leitz´s IMHO
