    I don't own a pair of Zeiss binoculars but they have a reputation for being outstanding. Bill

    Hello Pluto,

    the Zeiss Victory Fl 7x42 enjoy a great reputation.
    I don't have them, but I love my Leica 7x42 Ultravid.

    If the price is o.k., then you won't regret having them,

    Hello JG,
    I ´m interested also in some model 7x42, maybe like your Leica 7x42 Ultravid. how good it´s? for wide angle night skies,Milky Way and nébulas ? in your opinión sufficient magnification, 7X, for this purpose? and for terrestrial ,landscape or birding observations?
    Other question for me, is the exit pupil, I´ve 57 springs, I doubt if the 6mm exit pupil ….contrast, ?
    Thanks in advance.
    Tico

    Hello Tico,

    the Leica Ultravid 7x42 are excellent binoculars for watching the clouds and clumps in the Milky Way, and they offer a highly saturated color contrast on the terrestrial views.

    Even if I am a Leica fan, I am tempted to rate the unfortunately discontinued Docter Porro binoculars 7x50 even higher.
    Last year, I have included the Docter's Porros to my arsenal, and since that I really love them, even if the Leicas are much more compact and have better ergonomy when holding them in the hands.

    Since that, I have also purchased the Docter Porro 15x60, and maybe I'll include the Docter Porro 8x56,

    FWIW I've had a pair of 10x50 Zeiss for 40 odd years and I'm satisfied with the quality of the viewing. If I want that something extra I'll set up the 130.
