    Thanks for the review Sean - the binocular looks great!

    I tend to agree with the reduced exit pupil - I like the darker background as well as I have found large exit pupils tend to wash out everything because of the bright background sky. What did you upgrade to?

    I upgraded to a 10x42 Atlas Intrepid ED... I like them a lot and they have been the pair I stayed with, because the work well with my eyes (low IPD) and have very good optics.

    Hello Sean,

    not a bad choice,

    Atlas Optics Intrepid ED 10x42 Binocular from Eagle Optics

    Keep wondering, which company is the manufacturer, and what ED glass actually are they using. There is a mass of "semi" ED glass melts devoloped in China, not necessarily bad ones.

    Best

    I bought them from eagle optics, and they said they they belong to them now. I'm not sure about "how" ed they are, but they sent me the EO rager ed and atlas optics and the optics were almost identical for less money. From every lesser pair, the bushnell legend hds were a noticeable setup up in optics, the same jump was apparent to the atlas. I'm not saying anything bad about the legends, but looking through the atlas makes the legend look like they have liquid coating on them making them darker. It's hard to explain, but it is like the atlas optics "open up" a bit as if you aren't looking through glass as much. Very clear, cery bright, very accurate color. But more expensive. :-P
