 Hello All,

I am a new member and this my first post. not sure if this question has come up in the past. I have following optics:

Meopta meostar 8x32

Swarovski 8.5x42 EL

Meopta S spotter with 30-60WA

Even though I am highly impressed with Meopta , I am not sure what to get for my next big glass. Does anybody have good experience with options from both Meopta and Swarovski ? if yes, how close does Meopta 15x56 performs to Swarovski 15x56? does AK prism in swaro beat the SP prism in Meopta by a big margin or is it barely noticeable?

TIA

Jay

 I have some experience here, and I spend too much time reading reviews.

I have the Meopta Meostar 12x50 HD, and it is a very nice binocular, and Meopta does
a nice job in their latest models.

I also have the Swarovski 15x56 SLC Neu, and it is very good, and from what I know it is
a step behind the new SLC 15x56 HD.

The Meopta 15x56 would be a bit behind both of these.  The Zeiss Conquest 15x56 HD, is
in the same class, just a bit below, I have that one also.

Swarovski is still king of the big binoculars.

My question is will I miss a lot on details or is Swarovski marginally better ?

 You will be the only one to answer this question.  Will you spend many hours behind them,
and how good is your eyesight.
Also do you have a good sturdy tripod, and your budget, those are most important.

These are all very good binoculars, so good luck in your decision.
