Swarovski Swarovision 10x42 vs. Nikon EDG 10x42

Postby Bravado on Mon May 21, 2012 4:20 pm

Who has made a side-by-side comparison between the Swarovision 10x42 and EDG 10x42? What are the pros and cons of the models? Which one has the edge in terms of sharpness, contrast, color rendering, brightness, chromatic aberration etc.? Maybe there is no clear winner, but which of the models would you rank first?

Thanks for your input!

I've tested and seen both and you are right - there is no clear winner. It's really going to boil down to which you like better in your hands and only you can answer that. Some impressions.

The Swarovski flat field eyepieces are impressive. They do provide a different viewing experience than the older Els. You could get hooked on that feature, alone, quite easily. Truly a breathtaking viewing experience. Lastly, although the open bridge, EL design has been much copied, I still don't think you can beat the way any EL feels in the hand. They are distinctive in that regard.

The EDG is a heavy binocular in the hands, by comparison, at least for me, but it is built like a tank. Optics are Nikon's best. Edge sharpness and complete lack of eye strain is noteworthy. Crisp, sharp, and color correct across the entire field of view - about as technically perfect as binocular optics can be, in my book.

You really do owe it to yourself to put both of these fine binoculars in your hands

I have used both quite a bit.

The only pro for the EDG is the focus mechanism-its the best.

Otherwise the Swarovision IMO is a brighter glass.
The EDG is not quite up to the brightness level of the Zeiss FL,Swarovision or SLC HD.

Hi

Could you tell me if these superior brightness of the SV, SLC HD and Victory FL over the EDG is perceptible under the broad daylight?

How about the color saturation (vivid colors as to red, yellow) among them?

What about the sharpness level (at the center of the FOV) among them?

regards Pedro
