    Swarovski slc be Leica trinovid

    Just wanting a bit of feed back. I have the opportunity to buy a pair of near new swaro slc 10x42 for the same price of new pair of Leica trinovid. Do I go with the 2nd hand slc or go new? Is the glass that much netter?

    I've got the SLC's and a mate has the Trinovid. The SLC's I find are much nicer to use ergo wise, for me that is. I'd say the Swaro glass is better too.

    The SLC 10x42 would/should have the edge over the Leica Trinovid
    Check out the new price on the SLC Swaro - and dont pay his 2K buy now as I think 2200 is retail
    They look in top condition

    I would go them is 16-1750

    Yea SLC is nicer glass and being swaros they will look after you for the life of the binos anyhow (I'm sure leica would also) so I wouldn't worry if they are second hand if the price is right.
    I have a mate who has SLC's and I have EL's and I quite liked his ones glass was great the view was just a bit different as the ELs have "field flattening" (they call it "swarovision") which I like, some people hate and will go SLC over EL for that very reason
