Hi all New to forum. I just bought some used 10x25 Trinovid BC, which have the leather covering, rather than the BCA Rubber version. I just wondered if it is possible to work out the age from the Serial number? (Mine is 1433082) This is what I have been told about them, not sure how much is accurate - please help if you know different: Optical coatings or Phase correction in the BCs was updated about 1990? Apparently an original single fixture was used for the neck strap originally, before being updated to dual side lugs - which coincided with optical update. I am due to collect these tomorrow and would like to know if I am looking through the latest optical version when assessing them - (I am sure they will be good whichever) Mant thanks Scoob
I have had a set of 10 x 25 Leica Trinovid binoculars for over 20 years and have been delighted with them. The problem is that they are always in the wrong place. Today, what I think is a Bonelli's Eagle or a very frisky Honey Buzzard, has been disporting itself on the updrafts coming up the cliff in front of my house in Provence. Where are my binoculars - back in the UK? I have therefore decided to get another pair. For me 10 x 25 is the perfect size, combining reasonable magnification, ability to hold steady and light weight. Now that I no longer wear spectacles (thank you Centre for Sight, East Grinstead), they are easier to use than ever. The decision comes down to either the later Leica Ultravid or the new Zeiss Conquest binocs, both in 10 x 25. I know I am asking to be trolled posting this in a Leica forum but I have more than done my bit over the last few years, swelling Blackstone's profits. Any opinions folks? Wilson
