Can't really do it inside as Ilya said he would like to do a comparison. All you can do at the show is see how they appear to work under those conditions. Looking at signs, dark areas etc.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

There is a limited number of things you can do indoors, so it is a very incomplete evaluation.  They have these weird lights that cause purple flair in everything.  With Noctivids, I could comfortably resolve the facets on the inner facets on the reflector surfaces of the lamp without inducing flair, CA, etc.  And I could stills the shadow detail in the dark area to the side of the lamp.

Just learned from GPO, USA that they will have HD bins in stock on around March 1st as well as the first rifle scopes, with the ED models and more rifle scopes arriving one month later.

Hey Lee, good to see you, hows it going?


I'm anxious to see their offerings, Jensen says their offering will stand toe to toe with any of the big boys at a very competitive price. Knowing his history with Swaro and Zeiss, I suspect it will.

Hi Gerald

Sorry for the delay in replying. Like you I think Jensen is too canny to stake his reputation on product that is less than solid. I hope to get a chance to try out the product at an early date but since he is just starting out and dealers will be looking for deliveries too, I can imagine his first shipment of HDs (due soon) will not touch the floor before they go out of the door.

Good to hear from you

Lee
