  • Conclusion: Its called Swarovski. The whole presentation is fabulous. They are crisp, bright, and detailed. They fit your hand like a glove, and are just plain great. I shopped for months and the EL's are very nice and a little lighter, but not neccessary.
  • Pros: Best optical investment you will ever make. Your outdoor experience will be so much better.
  • Cons: Slightly heavier than the EL by 4 oz.
