Maybe they improved it?

I do know how to roll down an eyecup, thank you very much. It still fails to give me a full field of view (when I take my glasses off I can see the diff). And the Leica is NOT twice as much its only 160 dollars more, and worlds better in every category except weight. The Minox is a better monocular than my zeiss and it only costs 160. I just tested mine and it takes six full turns to get the thing to go from zero to infinity, so perhaps zeiss fixed that, or maybe mine is defective. I will compare to a new one in the local shop when I get a chance. I hope they improved it since mine.
Nice optics in a very lightweight package

Great little monocular. Good contrast, crisp view, & good eye relief (and my eyeglass script is -5.0 diopters). Guess the other guy couldn't figure out the eyecups roll down. As for slow focus, I respectfully disagree -- 10ft to infinity is less than a 1/2 turn of the barrel. And splash proof is more than adequate in field optics as they aren't used under water.
So paying nearly twice as much for the Leica monovid is just silly.
Ok, but not with glasses.

This monocular in my opinion, after having owned it several years, is not anywhere near worth its asking price. It is good, but not great. Pros: light weight, relatively sharp resolution edge to edge, durable and compact. Cons: very slow focus, have to twist it many times to go from far to close focus, I usually had to start twisting before I brought it up to my eye and keep twisting afterwards. Not even close to having its purported eye relief, I couldn't get satisfactory field of view with glasses on, so it was difficult to get on a target. The lubrication for the focus would leak out a bit around the edge of the eyepiece lens, messy. Not very bright or color rich view even in good lighting (compared to my new leica monovid). Not waterproof. So, this little guy has a lot of room for improvement. My main complaint was lack of eye-relief.
