I had one in my hands about three weeks ago that an aoudad hunter brought to camp. I was using my SLC HD, both were 10x42. The CE HD's are very sharp and clear, and not far off of my SLC HD's at all. Certainly not $750-$1000 difference by a long shot. True to form, they are very well made and ruggedly built. The non HD CE's/Meopta binos are very good, and these are a definite improvement IMO. The only thing I don't like about them is the diopter adjustment. You just click it to move it as there are no locks, etc to keep it in place.
On my Meostar 10x42s I put the tiniest dab of superglue at the seam of the diopter and focus knob. Held solid, but released when scraped by a pin.
My Meostars had a very comfortable view with a wide flat field, and a slight yellow bias. My only real complaint was CA. If the HD model keeps the same view as the original, with better CA control, it will be very hard to do better.
