Thanks for that "first impressions report", Doug.
It seems a case of "so far, so good" in every way.
I'm pleased you're happy you chose the 10x rather than the 8x.
The shape of these new "Pures" does look very well thought out.
Funny you should mention CA.
The other day I was at the seaside, looking through my 10x42 SEs at a group of around ten people in the process of getting out of a small leisure boat, which appeared to have been forced to anchor about 300 yards out as low tide approached, and climbing onto a motorised dinghy to be brought ashore.
All of them were wearing bright anoraks in either pink, red, blue or purple, and as I looked at them against the bright background of glistening sea water and bright sky, never before have I noticed so much false colour through these SEs.
Every coat seemed to have a bright halo around it's edge, with just about every colour of a rainbow represented to some degree, even noticeable "on - axis".
I have noticed CA though these before in certain circumstances, but never anything like so much as this in over 14 years of use.
Wishing you all the best with this major investment.
