****,

 

Looks like my only choice for a good view both with and without glasses would be the Oberwerk 15x70 Ultra or the Orion Resolux 15x70.  Everything I have read say they are the same or almost the same. Any opinions as to which of the two is better than the other?   Which one would be the best for glass wearers?

Even those BA8 series 15x70 binos have relatively short ER.  EdZ measured only 11-12mm effective:

Your best eye relief option is the later KUO MS or MS ED binos that have a bit over 18mm effective in their 16x70 models.
