Swarovski SLC New 10x42 WB
1 June 2010
Conclusion: Here we have another practically flawless binoculars, which won a very high, because second place, in our 10x42 binoculars test. What’s interesting, it fared better than the flag EL 10x42 Swarovski model, which is physically lighter, has shorter minimal focus distance but is also over 200 USD more expensive. It proves that the SLC series’ renown is fully deserved and a forced slimming down of binoculars doesn’t always do you good.
Pros: excellent quality of housing, very convenient to hold and to look through,, very good transmission,, slight chromatic aberration,, practically zero astigmatism level,, low coma,, excellent whiteness reproduction,, imperceptible light fall-off at the edge of the field,, perfectly circular exit pupils on almost black background,, sharp image almost to the edge of the field,, high quality prisms and coatings,, wide maximum gauge of the eyepieces,, good blackening inside ...
Cons: distortion could have been lower,, minimal focus distance amounts to 3.3 meters.
