This weekend will see the official launch of the Swarovski NEW EL at the RutlandBirdfair 08. With improvements to the binocular including :
Field flattener lenses (with excellent contrast right up to the image periphery)
Fluoride-containing HD (High Definition) lenses giving lifelike, high-contrast images
Maximum exit pupil distance of 20mm (giving greater viewing comfort, especially for spectacle wearers, which is unusual in a 10x binocular).
They tell me they have improved on what we think is already a stunning binocular….at £1600+ lets hope so. They are on order and we are told that stock will be here in the Autumn. For those that fancy a pair of Swarovski’s but don’t like the price we still have stock of the EL (as is now) at the very competitive £1020 (8x) & £1070(10x) and whats more were even giving away a Swarovski lens cleaning kit worth £20 while stocks last. There seems uncertainty whether Swarovski are going to keep on with the existing EL’s so it may be when they’ve gone, you’llhave to dig deep!
