I've owned this leather model for several years now but just decided to review these along with the Leica 10x25 rubber armored, my birding pair. I use these only for theater and sports, although they're perfectly fine for birding in good weather. Optically, they are amazing. Clear, sharp and bright. Good FOV. Decent eye relief. I wear glasses and get a full view. My only complaint is the leather wrap. And I mention this because the demo model in the store had the same problem! The leather wrapping comes unglued at the inside edge in the back, at the seam. I always have to press it back down when I use them. When you pay as much for binoculars as I did for these, I expect the things to impress mechanically as well as cosmetically. Leica has overcome so many optical challenges to create these binoculars. But they have been thwarted by glue!
