Much has been said of the supremacy of the Terminagler in terms of performance. Excellent edges, wide field, etc.
But, for some long-effective-eye-relief buffs, I've heard its 19mm ER is borderline. When I had an hour or so to play with one, I found it comfortable enough to use with a DioptRx, but still preferred the "eye spa" of the 22T4, despite having the same ER rating. I didn't think to compare the diameter of the eye lenses, but maybe that's a factor as to why?
Since getting a 17.5 Morpheus, I think I can say that the "eye spa" is indeed a mitigating factor in my enjoyment of an eyepiece. The 22LVW gave me a similar experience as well.
So, I return my consideration to the venerable 35Pan. No, it doesn't give the sheer FoV of the 31T5, and I've read there's just enough pincushion to bother some observers. I've never looked through one, but the 24mm ER seems like it could give that easy view with DioptRx.
On the consideration of comfort/immersion/eye spa alone, does the 35Pan compare favorably to the 31T5? As an aside, I'm aware the 30UFF has this quality, but sadly is not DioptRx compatible without modification.
