I have been running the Swarovski 15x56's and although they are outstanding, they are heavy. The 12x NL's are such an outstanding design, not only optically but the size is so nice for western big game where size and weight matters. My new go to binoculars for sure.
The NL Pure 8x32 is amazing binos for those who care about size of 8x42. its view detail is crisp and image quality is astonishing. but one thing I do not like is blackout which require you to position but I can tolerate though.
The NL Pure are the Best Binoculars I have ever looked thru. I can't believe the better quality they have from the old EL's.
The NL Pure 8x42 are by far the best optics I have used, super clear, and great build quality.
