Hi all,
For those in the market for Swarovski 10x42 (and 8.5x42) EL's, Swarovski have recently released an upgraded version that has faster focusing (press release on web is 17/03/2005 although I think the model may have been in Australia longer). When I researched high-end binos one of the critisms of the swaros was the slow focusing from infinity to close focus - now you have not only a very close focus but the focusing barrel turns from close to infinity is only 1.5 turns when compared to 2.5 turns previously - this would be particularly useful when birding in the bush when you need to change focus distant frequently and often quickly. Note that serial numbers beyond L741995971 have this feature.
