Quote:This is a quick review of my new Strathspey 15x70 binoculars. I am lead to believe that these come from the same family as Garrett 15x70s and possibly Oberwerk 15x70s
Quote:I was literally just heading out to buy a pair of skymasters to take on holiday next week, when I logged on to look at Edz's post on testing binos in the shop and saw your thread. Think I'll hang on and make do with my 10x42's till you get a chance to report your night time findings.
This has satisfied my curiosity on the immediate difference between the MC Skymasters & the FMC Strathspey's.
Thanks for the update .
From what you've concluded thus far , it seems it would be just as easy to find two specimens of the SAME model with more perceived differences !

Quote:Hi Nair ,What I meant was that anyone could buy TWO outwardly identical models of binoculars , meaning literally of the same name , and STILL get the impression that one of them eliminates reflections and / or absorbs colours better than the other . Based upon a combination of HANDS - ON experiences and even more upon reading thousands of posts from other experienced users , I think there is FAR more specimen variation from one to the next , even amongst very expensive binoculars and scopes .Hope that helps to clarify my point , Nair !Regards , Kenny
