i took the plunge and decided to go with a lower end “Alpha.”...a Swarovski SLC 10x42. I new to using bins for the great outdoors mainly birding or general wildlife viewing. I was wondering if anyone could give some insight into how much “snake oil” nonsense is built into the marketing of binoculars in general?
I am an experienced audiophile and when it comes to critical listening I personally know even slight changes in listening position when comparing equipment , my mood on a given day, how much I paid for the item, or bias can influence our opinions.
I even A B the same SLC model and I could swear one was sharper then the other but then again perhaps it was just a slight adjustment in the way the bins were configured.
