Has anyone had the chance to use the Oberwerk 20x60, and if so how do they perform?

Yes, I had these binos for awhile, decided that the 20x magnification was too high for hand-holding (no surprise) but the aperture was too much trouble for setting up my p-mount. Also, the views were generally too dim to really appreciate the breadth of features in my field of view. There were usually too few bright stars to orient, to find or even to sweep into a target. After a few months of use, traded them in for a Obie 15x60 which suits me much better. The 15s are lighter than a 70 mm pair, yet give almost as bright a field and equivalent FOV.

Do you know if there are any reviews comparing the Oberwerk 15x60 to the 15x70?
