Summary: I had hoped this bino would be good for glassing long range in bright sun. What surprised me was how good it was after sundown. 15 minute after sundown I could still see an ear twitch or an antler move while deer were in thick brush at 800 yards. A half hour after sundown (on a clear night) I had no problem seeing deer as far as the terrain would let me. Well enough to see antlers. With the small exit pupil I expected to just be able to tell they were deer.
Summary: I bought these and the 10x42 ELs. I still use the 10x42 most of the time, but I was surprised to see that there's very little weight difference between the two. I could wear these on my bino harness no problem. But put these on a tripod with a floating head and these are a dream to use when glassing. So nice. Nothing negative to say about these. Crystal clear and live up my expectations.
Why buy anything else ~ you'll just be dissapointed

Summary: I like the Swarovski 15X56 for versatility over long range & the "doubler"[DOUBLER IS A 2X additional eyepiece available from Swarovski for addition to most of their binoculars on either the left or right eyecup so as to transform them into 2X magnification through that lens network] can be quickly added on to either eyecup(I use one for each eyecup so I have a "stereo spotting scope") and then you have spotting scope!
Quality optics help you sucess on hunting and hold their value!

Summary: I wanted to have the best available binoculars to use on deer hunts. This binoculars are for me excellent on low light conditions and the only dislike is their weight if you walk a lot with them on. Also if well care is taken you won't loose money if you decide to sell it.
Summary: Used my 15 power SLC binoculars on a recent caribou hunt in AK. They worked just as I hoped. I will be using them on a moose hunt in the Interior of AK this week. I look forward to many, many years of use.
