Swarovision
« on: October 27, 2011, 06:25:47 PM »
Got 'em tonight.  12x50 Swarovsion to replace the 15x56.   I'll probably change out the Zeiss next spring for the EL range and be back to all Swaro.   First hunt for the new Swarovsion will be Shorty's and then off to Colorado for the 3rd season.  Will have some reports after a little field time, although, probably not necessary as everyone knows that these are the poo!!!!!

Ah, nice!  My buddy just purchased the 10X50s right before our out of state trip and they were unreal.  I'd be interested in hearing what you think about the 12x50s.  I was worried that they would be a bit too shaky, but maybe not, too.

NICE!  Look forward to your review.

I'm about half and half when it comes to glassing from a standing position or off of the top of my spotting scope turned 90 degrees.  This was the 10th season I've had 10X EL's and it was a wise decision back then and now.

Replacing or adding the 12X to my collection is DEEP on my priority list and I'll be lucky to get my top three off the list this year!   So please say they SUCK, so when I'm laying in bed next to my wife I'm thinking about her and not these new 12x50 Swarovsion!

I've been hearing from some hardcore guys that swarvo 12x50s binos and a Zeiss  spotter are the way to go. Way out of my pay grade tho lol, maybe some day. Congrats on the great glass, im sure their worth the price

I am going to send them to outdoorsmans for a tripod adapter stud before I give a thorough review as this was their intended purpose.  You can hand hold them and can glass off your knees very well with them.  The are super bright, and super sharp!  Night and day difference with my zeiss rf 10x45.  They are very compact and light for a 12x50 - very comfortable in the hand.

I packed both on my colorado trip and primarily glassed with the swarovision because they are so nice!  I cannot imagine how good they will be on a tripod!

If you're ever coming up the Entiat Valley, PM me, as I'd love to look through 'em. :tup:
