Hi

Nikon is a much bigger company, of course, but we have had very few complaints about their service and that says a lot for such a huge corporation. Have no problem recommending Nikon for its service,

The EDG is good too, but I"ve looked through one after owning the regular EL and I personally didn't like the EDG.
Was very nice, but I think I"m used to the feel and look through the glass of the swarovski.

I expect the new EL will be a delight and a pair that will set me for a long time without buyer remorse for better.

There will be other vendors that copy, but I figure if swarovski is my favorite now, more than likely it will still be my favorite once everybody gets the same technology and becomes a true competitor.

I guess My next question June is if you had you hands on them, did you notice any problems with the focus, or diopter adjust?

Seems I remember some issue with the prototype.....

I wonder if you had that same prototype or whether you had an updated version in your hands?

Hi

Not yet, as far as something that has shipped, but they are orderable. Swarovski si calling these the Swarovision model.

I did review a prototype. See my post at, about1-14194.html?hilit=swarovski+EL+HD#p37614 or my blog at, http://www.blogger.com/posts.g?security ... umPosts=25

I think the new EL HD is as good as a binocular can get. Contrast, resolution and, especially the new flatfield optics will knock your socks off. Handling, for me, was even better than the already super handling of the old model, too.

Not to worry - I think Swarovski supplies these with a towel (okay, just kidding)

No, I would not sell an old EL, but the new model also gets use flat field optics and that is as much what the new EL is about as the objective.
