Holger Merlitz had warned us (quote form his Field Test): „.... my suggestion to anybody who wants to compare the WX to his favorite binocular would be: Don't do it! It just turns too ugly for any competitor I am aware of.“
I had to try anyway.
The best current 7x50 I know is the Zeiss „Marine“ (7x50 B/GA T*), and I just needed to see for myself how this one would „turn ugly“ when compared with the WX.
To make it short: it wasn‘t a real competition. You can‘t really compare a 130m fov (7.4 degrees) with one of 188m (10.7 degrees), the difference is so big. Whatever you place next to the WX gives you the impression of tunnel vision, even if by traditional standards that‘s not the case at all.
So how do you continue life with your Zeiss Marine after you have had the „WX shock“ ?
Ha, I found a cure for my misery ... unmount the WX form the tripod, then use it freehand for as long as you can (people doing push-ups have an advantage here ). When you get tired, switch to your „normal“ 7x50 bino - yes, of course the fov is crap, but ahhh, the relief, my Zeiss is suddenly so light and easy to hold in my hands.
Then, just try to remember that feeling of lighntess each time the dream about the wide fov of the WX creeps into your thoughts ...
