Hi SurfBirders, anyone has a copy of the NIKON 10X42HG L DCF for a long time? I just considering to buy a pair of this bino and would like to hear more about the long time field experiences such smoothness of the focusing ring and eg the condition of the rubber armoring etc. My wife has a pair of 8x32 and it has really a superior quality as an optics. Unfortunately the plastic NIKON logo and the model marker were lost (not too strong glue) within a short time. I also don't really like to hold it around my neck as the balance is ugly and tilting on my chest when I am walking.
So please, share experiences please.
