Elites are "back" ! - 10/05/2012

by Ron G. from Ontario, Canada

Pretty soon the price will probably go up on these latest Elites. They must be the best kept secret in optics. Made in Japan and top quality through and through. I currently have some Leica Ultravid HD's, and believe it or not these Elites are darn close, and for 1/4 the price. I tested a lot of 8x42's in the $1,000 range (and up) and these gave up no ground and compared favourably with the very best (read most expensive) Get a pair while they are still reasonably priced. They are Alpha quality all the way.

Very pleased - 11/05/2011

Had an old pair of Bausch and Lomb Elites 10x42 but dropped them, focus was off and could not be repaired. New glasses are a little heavy but OK.
Easily focused. I could clearly see a dark bird at the dark base of a shrub. Very good buy for the money. Am very pleased with new glasses.
