    take a look at the gso range aswell.
    a good budget ep that perform well for the price.
    especially the superviews.

    that is fair comment.
    there are three types of vixen iirc.
    here's a link to them:

    hope this helps.

    No experience with the 32mm, but my 10mm doesn't get used at all anymore as I don't like the tight eye relief and the view was just not what I was looking for. It was just ok. The 25mm on the other hand, I enjoyed so much as to pick up a second for use in my binocular telescope. A very decent Plossl.
