Hello people. I have discussed this a wee bit in the past . I love my E2's but find it difficult to take in the entire view while wearing my glasses . Also more difficult to get good eye placement with glasses on so I find myself using them without glasses . I still get a decent view without glasses and they are way more comfortable that way, easier eye placement , but there is a significant difference in the view while wearing glasses , especially at night because of my astigmatism . Wearing my glasses while using the E2's improves the view but shrinks the fov significantly .
The problem is that I can't seem to find a suitable replacement that has enough eye relief to allow me a comfortable view and enable me to see the entire fov without struggling to see it . The one binocular that has my attention for suitable replacement is the Nikon Monarch HG 8x42 . The HG is twice what I paid for each of my E2's so I would have to sell both of my E2's to fund it . From what I understand the 8x42 HG isn't much better than the E2's yet it is twice the money . What it has going for it is increased eye relief although I have no way of trying it to see how it fits me because the stores in my area that sell it don't stock it .
I have always liked the 8x42 size because of all the binoculars I have had or tried , the 8x42 was the easiest and most comfortable. My 8x42 Regal is reasonably easy/comfortable to use with my glasses compared to my other bins. It's always been the most comfy of any bin I've used , with or without glasses on . I would be happy to live with the Regals if they had the wide fov and quality of view that the E2's have .
Maybe I am at a dead end or the point of diminishing returns . I am open to suggestions .
