Swarovski SLC 10x42 WB HD

19 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The new launches of Swarovski and Nikon binoculars inflated the prices of these instruments to an unprecedented level. When it comes to the offer of the former, we get, in the 42 mm class EL Swarovision models which price tag reaches about 2000 Euro and SLC HD models cheaper by just about 250 Euro. I’ve always wondered what’s the point of launching two series of binoculars with such a high and very similar price.
  • Pros: compact, tight and very solid casing,, good transmission,, well corrected chromatic aberration,, low astigmatism,, slight coma,, sharp image almost in the whole field of view,, imperceptible brightness loss on the edge of the field,, excellent blackening inside inner tubes,, good quality of prisms and coatings.
  • Cons: a bit too high distortion level.
