Excerpt: High quality and performance I'm very satisfied with this Leica 8x42 Trinovid Binocular . It's very sharp, has a nice vibrant image,and great contrast. Chromatic aberration or color fringing is corrected very well (essentially absent) in the center of the image.
Summary: I'm very satisfied with this binocular. It's very sharp and has a nice vibrant image, great contrast. CA or color fringing is corrected very well (essentially absent) in the center of the image. The image quality is excellent, but I am even more satisfied with the design and build.
Summary: these work OK most of the time. I saw a lot of purple fringing on back lit surfaces, not cool at 1400 bucks. Otherwise they are sharp and are well made. I expected better for something that is supposed to be so much improved.
Summary: I was very excited to get these bins. Picked one up about a week after they came out. However, when they arrived I was very disappointed with its performance. When compared side by side with my old pair of fujinon CD's (~$250.00) they are only marginally brighter and about the same on sharpness.
