Swarovski EL 8x32 WB
30 March 2011
Conclusion: The score the Swarovski EL 8x32 WB reached in our test is really very good. The problem is that over such a high-end series instrument from such a prestigious producer with the price tag of over 1500 Euro we should only ooh and aah – the results should be simply outstanding with no slip-ups whatsoever. The Swarovski had slip-ups, though, and in the least expected areas to boot.
Pros: sturdy magnesium housing which is very comfortable to hold,, high transmission,, sensational whiteness rendition,, negligible astigmatism,, low coma,, good sharpness at the edge of the field of view,, very low brightness loss at the edge of the field,, good darkening inside the binoculars,, prisms of high quality,, efficient antireflection coatings,, wide selection of accessories included in box.
Cons: noticeable distortion,, significant chromatic aberration at the edge of the field,, the background of exit pupils is too light.
Conclusion: I would like to thank Swarovski Optik for sending this binocular to me to review. I would also like to point out that all the reviews on this site, including this one are my opinion of the binocular and are not influenced in any way by manufacturers, distributors or suppliers.
