Currently perhaps the best 15×56 on the market. It is expensive, but may in terms of optical performance be ahead  even of very good 15x56s like the Zeiss Conquest HD 15×56 (see separate post) or the Meopta MeoStar 15×56 HD (see separate post) and has a superb rating among binocular enthusiasts, see e.g. Roger Vine’s review on ScopeViews:
