Remarks:

The smallest of the EL “SV” (“Swarovision”) line, available in 8×32 and 10×32. It is a bit longer than most other 8x32s, features the typical open bridge design and is currently one of the best 8x30s / 8×32 available on the market, with outstanding central AND edge sharpness. It has been criticized for poor stray-light suppression and flares on bright light sources, but in BINOCULARS TODAY’s experience, these negative aspects have been grossly overstated, sometimes by users who perhaps did not properly adjust the binocular to their IPD etc. Reports on problems with the focuser on early production models, on the other hand, were true, but Swarovski has improved the matter continuously, and this has been sorted now.
