Swarovski Habicht 10x40 W

24 January 2010
  • Conclusion: This text won’t be impartial at all because I must admit I am simply in love with the look of these binoculars, the way they lie in your hand, the way they smell… It is the classic look epitomized – just beautiful. Writing here about too small eyecups, too high distortion or truncated pupils is like demanding from a 1966 Ford Mustang to comply with the contemporary requirements for emission of exhaustion fumes and to do 100 kilometers to five litres.
  • Pros: light, compact, handy and very stylish housing,, wide field of view,, perfect whiteness rendition,, chromatic aberration well corrected,, low astigmatism,, slight coma,, excellent quality of coatings and prisms,, negligible light fall-off at the edge of the field,, good transmission,, long warranty period.
  • Cons: truncated pupils,, visible flares near the pupils,, distortion a bit too high,, very small eyecups which make the binoculars fall into your eyes.
