Definately the Swarovski they will last. They are a great choice! You will be sastisfied especially as your last pair of bino's.

FOV is wider on the Swaro EL @ 420'
vs.
394.6' for the Minox HG
 
If money is not a factor I would go with the Swarovski EL.
Myself, I prefer the Swaro SLC's.

Hello, and welcome, pacfan!

Just curious why you narrowed your choice down to these two binoculars, given the huge difference in price between the two.  It isn't an equivalent comparison, as those two are not in the same class.  The Swaro is most definitely the better binocular optically as reflected in the fact its retail price is more than twice that of the Minox HG.  Both are very fine choices, but if you're willing to spend the extra $ for the Swaro EL, I would also encourage you to look at the Zeiss Victory FL 8X32, Leica Ultravid 8X32, and Nikon LXL 8X32, which are direct competitors to the EL price- and quality-wise.
