    They are awesome. I am madly in love with them. I am heading out to do some low-light looking through them tonight I think you would be very happy going with them!

    The Big Three all make flagship products. While Ruttin sees the FLs as the clear winner, others prefer the Swarovision, or the Ultravid HD. Each has their strongest and weakest points. Swaros are very even in resolution, contrast, and aberration control. Leica favors contrast, making an apparently brighter image. Zeiss controls chromatic aberration exceedingly well, while allowing for some minor distortion and edge softening.

    My current favorite super-bin is the SLC HD. Aberrations are extremely well controlled while leaving just enough pincushion distortion to avoid rolling-ball while panning. The Swarovision is too well corrected, for me, and the rolling ball is pronounced in it.

    If you are in the market for a top-of-the-line binocular, I would suggest getting some outside time with each one before you decide which one is "awesomest."

    Zeiss' FL line competes with the rest of the super-bins out there. They are awesome.

    Zeiss is still one of the "big three," and their products are usually tough to beat.
    Like always, Bitterroot nailed it.

    I had a pair of 10x40 Conquests. I was not impressed. Maybe I got a bad apple but there was a ton of CA.

    Upgraded to the 10x45 Victory RF binos. Only way I could be happier is if the RF had the angle feature. The glass is excellent though.

    Couldn't be more true, The truth is in the eye of the binocular holder.
